Cerebellar Regions Investigated.

This flatmap diagram displays the four cerebellar regions of interest for our stereological assay. Hemispheric lobules IV–VI (in yellow) are bordered by the preculminate and superior posterior fissures, lateral to the fourth ventricle. Crus I (in blue) is the region bordered by the superior posterior and horizontal fissures. Crus II (in green) is bordered by the horizontal and ansoparamedian fissures. Lobule X, the flocculonodular lobe (in orange), is bordered by the posterolateral fissure. This image is an adaptation of the diagram by Larsell, 1958 [80].
