\({\bf{Main~Functions:}}\) - adjusts posture/equilibrium via muscle cells - refining movements - storing memories regarding movements via cerebral cortex, basal nuclei, brainstem \({\bf{Cerebellar~Cortex:}}\) - made of highly branched Purkinje cells, projects into cerebellar nuclei > neurons transmitting sensory info synapse with the Purkinje cells > Purkinje cells transmit motor information to cerebrum/brainstem - arbor vitae: branching white matter of the cerebellar cortex \({\bf{Peduncles:}}\) - superior: link cerebellum + mesencephalon/diancephalon/cerebrum - middle: link cerebellum + sensorimotor neurons in pons - inferior: link cerebellum + medulla oblongata, carry cerebellar tracts from spinal cord |dw:1540003789741:dw|
