cerebellum: Superior View

Cerebellum: Inferior view

Lobes and Fissures of Cerebellum

  • The anterior lobe is seen on the superior surface of the cerebellum is replaced from the posterior lobe by a v-shaped primary fissure.
  • The posterior (middle) lobe lies between the primary fissure and the posterolateral (uvulonodular) fissure.
  • The flocconodular lobe lies posterior to the uvulonodular fissure.

A deep horizontal fissure separates the superior and inferior surfaces of the cerebellum.

Other fissures outline further subdivisions of both the vermis and the hemispheres into lobules.
