  • Cerebella from 19 normal Caucasian males, ages 19–84 years, were studied using stereological methods. Cerebellum was divided into four different regions: the anterior and posterior lobe, the vermis, and the flocculonodular lobe. Total volume of the cerebellar cortex and white matter, cerebellar surface area, total Purkinje and granule cell number, and the distribution of the volumes of the Purkinje cells and their nuclei were estimated in all four regions. The global white matter was reduced by… CONTINUE READING
