CNS - Cerebellum

CNS 2nd lecture exam - Cerebellum

Cerebellum intergrate very rapidly information on what ? (3) 1. Momentary status of muscle contraction 2. Joint tension 3. Visual and auditory input on equilibrium
Cerebellum makes our movements ___? Smooth and effective (influences muscle tone and posture)
Right cerebellar hemisphere deals with which side of the body? Right
___ is one of the cerebellum's greates attributes? Compensation
The cerebellum is attache to the MO via the ___. To the pons via the ___ and the midbrain via the ____ 1. Inferior cerebellar peduncle - restiform body 2. Middle cerebellar peduncle 3. Superior cerebellar peduncle
Most common brain tumor in a child is a ___? Where does it occur? 1. Medulloblastoma 2. Superior medullary velum
External subdivisions of the cerbellum? Median = vermis Lateral = Hemispheres
Inferior cerebellar peduncle: __ dominate and __ are present Afferent dominate and efferent are present
Middle cerebellar peduncle: ___ fibers only! Afferent
Superior cerebellar peduncle: __ dominate and ___ are present Efferent fibers dominate and afferent fibers are present
What is the white mater of the cerebellum called? Corpus meduallare
White matter of cerebellum is continuous with what? The 6 cerebellar peduncles
Extension of white matter toward the periphery appear as a branching tree called the what? Arbor Vitae
The anterior of Paleocerebellar lobe receives its input from which 2 tracts? Spinocerebellar and cuneocerebellar
The function of the paleocerebellar lobe? General muscle tone
The posterior or neocerebellar layer gets its input from where and what is its function? 1.Corticopontocerebellar 2. Coordination of skilled movement
The flocculonodular lobe receives input from where and its function? 1. Vestibular nucleus 2. Equilibrium
Isolated in the white matter are 4 pairs of nuclei called the what? Central cerebellar nuclei
Types of neurons in the cerebellum? Perkinje, golgi II, Stellate, Basket, Grannular
Two axons that bring input to the cerebellum? Mossy and climbing fibers
How might the cerebellum deal with restoring muscle tone of the left thigh? 1. Anterior spinocerebellar tract will take input to the inferior and-or superior cerebellar peduncles. 2. From there, fibers will travel to the anterior lobe. 3. From there, fibers will go down to the globose and fastigial nucleus.

Efferent cerebella outflow: Where does the fastigial nucleus terminate? Via what? Vestibular nuclei and CN 3, 4 and 6 via the inferiror cebrebellar peduncle
Cerebellar outflow: where do globose axons terminate? Via what? Red nucleus and reticular formation via the superior cerebellar peduncle
Cerebellar efferent outflow: Where do the dentate and eboliform axons terminate? Red nucleus and thalamus via the superior cerebellar peduncle
