Prevedi cerebellum na: francuski · nemački
ETYM Latin, dim. of cerebrum brain.
(Irregular plural: cerebellums, or: cerebella).
Part of the brain of vertebrate animals which controls muscle tone, movement, balance, and coordination. It is relatively small in lower animals such as newts and lizards, but large in birds since flight demands precise coordination. The human cerebellum is also well developed, because of the need for balance when walking or running, and for finely coordinated hand movements.
A major division of the vertebrate brain; situated above the medulla oblongata and beneath the cerebrum in humans.
Part of brain projecting at back; “little brain”.
