Cerebellum part 1

1. Which of these is the afferent fibres in the neocerebellar part?

  • from cerebral cortex (planning of movement) to pontine nuclei. Goes contralateral via the middle cerebellar peduncle to end in lateral parts of the cerebellum (cortico-ponto-cerebral tract)
  • dentate nucleus to the red nucleus and the ventral lateral nucleus of the thalamus to the motor cortex of frontal lobe which then forms the corticospinal and corticobulbar pathways
  • Dorsal and ventral spinocerebellar tracts from muscles, joints and cutaneous receptors enters cortex ipsilateral via inf. and sup. cerebellar peduncles
  • From vestibula nuclei in pons and medulla (vestibullar apparatus from the inner ear) to the cortex ipsilateral to fluccolonodular lobe via vestibulocerebellar tracts

2. Which of these statement are incorrect?

  • Neocerebellum is the cerebral part and is the largest part but all embyologically the newest part
  • Efferent fibres comes Superior cerebellar peduncles and fastigal nucleus in inferior cerebellar nucleus
  • Efferent divisions = vestibular cerebellum and lateral hemisphere
  • Afferent division = spinocerebellar and pontocerebellar

3. Which efferent tract of the Paleocerebellum?

  • the corticol fibres goes to the globose and emboliform nuclei then to the red nucleus in the midbrain via superior cerebellar peduncles to then form the descending rubrospinal tracts
  • projects to fastigial nucleus which then goes to vestibular nuclei and reticular formation
  • dentate nucleus to the red nucleus and the ventral lateral nucleus of the thalamus to the motor cortex of frontal lobe which then forms the corticospinal and corticobulbar pathways

  • corticospinal
  • reticospinal
  • rubrospinal tract
  • corticobulbar
  • spinocerebellar
