Definition Part of the rhombencephalon that lies in t Part of the rhombencephalon that lies in the posterior cranial fossa behind the brain stem, consisting of the cerebellar cortex, deep cerebellar nuclei and cerebellar white matter. A portion of the brain that helps regulate posture, balance, and coordination. (NIDA Media Guide Glossary) The dorsal topographic division of the hindbrain, connected to the ventral division-the pons-by a white matter tract, the middle cerebellar peduncle. The cerebellum was discovered and named by Aristotle (De Partibus Animalium) based on macrodissection of a variety of animals not including humans; see translation by Thompson (1910, 494b 30). Older synonyms include parencephalon (Aristotle), hindbrain (Galen, c192). alon (Aristotle), hindbrain (Galen, c192).
