FIGURE 2 Anatomy of the cerebellum. (A) A midsagittal view of the cerebellum and associated structures. (B) Dorsal view of the cerebellar cortex is flattened to reveal the areas that are normally hidden beneath; the individual folia are still folded. If these could be completely smoothed, the cerebellum would be more than 1 m long. The anatomic divisions include the anterior, posterior, and flocculonodular lobes. The functional divisions are shown in shades of blue, and their connections are outlined in Fig. 3. (C) The dorsal brain stem with the cerebellum removed (dashed blue lines) shows the three pairs of cerebellar peduncles; exiting cerebellar fibers project from deep cerebellar nuclei to the thalamus, red nucleus, and brainstem. (D) Ventral brain stem showing the major inputs to the cerebellum. Fibers from the pontine nuclei cross the midline before entering the cerebellum through the massive middle peduncle. The inferior peduncle primarily carries input from the inferior olive and sensory information, particularly from vestibular nuclei.

Inferior cerebellar peduncle: climbing fibers enter from inferior olive and cross to contralateral cerebellum mossy fibers enter from spinal cord and ascend to ipsalateral cerebellum
