Cerebellum: Anatomy and Physiology

Physiology of Olivo-Cerebellar Loops

TLDR
This chapter describes general physiological aspects of its primary components, highlighting parts of the neocerebellum and vestibulocere Bellum that are involved in the generation of eye blinks and compensatory eye movements, respectively.

Cerebellar cortical organization: a one-map hypothesis

The fundamental architecture of the cerebellum is concealed within a terminological forest — transverse zones and stripes, longitudinal zones and microzones, patches, etc. To make things worse, the

Action-based organization and function of cerebellar cortical microcircuits

TLDR
The results suggest that the cerebellar C3 zone is organized and operates within an action-based frame of reference, with different microcircuits within the zone controlling specific muscle synergies.

Zones in the cerebellar cortex. Their organization and potential relevance to cerebellar stimulation.

TLDR
It is suggested that inattention to the relationships between electrode placement and zones in the cerebellar cortex may be partially responsible for the sometimes capricious results during and/or subsequent Cerebellar cortical stimulation.

Functional Modules in the flocculus of the rabbit cerebellum

TLDR
The variation among species in the size of different segments of the folial chains of vermis and hemispheres, in combination with differences in motor behaviour, are used to relate parts of the cerebellum to the control of specific motor behaviours.

Fractured cutaneous projections to the granule cell layer of the posterior cerebellar hemisphere of the domestic cat

TLDR
The Organization of cutaneous projections to eortibellar hemispheric cortex in cats is reexamined by using micromapping methods.

Redefining the cerebellar cortex as an assembly of non-uniform Purkinje cell microcircuits

TLDR
The hypothesis that regional differences in properties of cerebellar cortical microcircuits lead to important differences in information processing is developed.

TLDR
After lesions of inferior olive, survival times of 5 to 12 days and Nauta staining, degeneration is present in white matter and central cerebellar nuclei and Deiters' nucleus andOccasional labeling of mossy fiber terminals is explained by involvement of reticular nuclei.

THE CEREBELLUM: A REVIEW AND INTERPRETATION

Detailed studies of the comparative anatomic relations and development, phylogenetic and ontogenetic, of the cerebellum in mammals and submammals have thrown new light on the functional connections
