Early cerebellum development in humans is poorly understood. The present study histologically examined sections from 20 human embryos and fetuses at 6 weeks (12–16 mm crown-rump length (CRL); 4 specimens), 7–9 weeks (21–39 mm CRL; 8 specimens), 11–12 weeks (70–90 mm CRL; 4 specimens) and 15–16 weeks (110–130 mm CRL; 4 specimens). During 7–9 weeks (approximate CRL 28 mm), the rhombic lip (a pair of thickenings of the alar plate) protruded dorsally, bent laterally, extended ventrolaterally and… Expand
