Visible Human Transverse Section Through the Head

You selected: cerebellum

The cerebellum lies below the largest part of the brain, the cerebrum. Neurons in the cerebellum help control motor coordination, including control over muscle tone, equilibrium of the body, and a positional sense of where the body is in space. Walking in a straight line by placing your feet heel to toe requires input from the cerebellum.
