Exploration of the cerebellum from above and behind
Lobules and sulci of posterior and superior aspects of cerebellum
The meninges and vessels have been removed and the deeper sulci of the posterosuperior aspect of the cerebellum opened to emphasize their positions. The view particularly demonstrates the continuity of lateral parts of the cerebellum with the lobules of the vermis.
1 . Anterior part quadrangular lobule (anterior semilunar lobule)
2 . Posterior part quadrangular lobule(simplex lobule) (posterior semilunar lobule)
3 . Superior semilunar lobe (crus I ansiform lobule)
4 . Inferior semilunar lobe (crus II ansiform lobule)
5 . Pyramid (vermis)
6 . Posterior cerebellar incisure
7 . Biventral lobule (dorsal paraflocculus)
8 . Culmen of monticulus (the deep sulcus between the two pointers is unnamed)
9 . Primary fissure
10 . Declive of cerebellum
11 . Folium of vermis (visible in the depths of the specimen)
12 . Tuber of vermis
13 . Posterior superior fissure
14 . Deep unnamed sulcus within superior semilunar lobule
15 . Horizontal cerebellar sulcus
16 . Prepyramidal fissure (not opened widely)
