Male Speaker: The cerebellum part of the hindbrain is concerned with a regulation of co-ordination and balance. It is an oval shape structure with central for all, which is flying to an either side by a -- lobe the frill is called the vermis and the expanded lobes are the hemispheres the surface is covered with the folds or folia. In the illustration presented is section through the folium has been drawn out and cut through to show its internal structure, the outer region of the cerebellum is know as the cortex or gray matter. It contains two distinct players of nerve cells the molecular layer containing stellate and basket cells which process information within the cortex and the granular layer containing smoke granule cells and Golgi cells which shift incoming information. The layers are separated from each other by a layer purkinje cells which carry information concerning body movement out of the cerebellum. Beneath the cortex lies the white mater which is composed of nerve fibers, mossy fibers and climbing fibers that pass in and out of the cerebellum, The mossy fibers are a major root for information entering the cerebellum while the climbing fibers carry information to the cells in the molecular layer of the cerebellar cortex, the cerebellum lies below the occipital lobes of the brains cerebro hemispheres.
