Experimental study of the efferent projections from the cerebellar nuclei to the brain stem of the cat.
From Brodal (1972). The cerebellovestibular projection The fibers to the vestibular complex from the cerebellum are derived from three sources: (a) the vestibular part of the cerebellar cortex, (b) the fastigial nucleus, and (c) the vermal (spinal) part of the cerebellar cortex. (a) The fibers from the vestibular part of the cerebellum are usually considered to be derived only from the flocculo-nodular lobe. The findings of Brodal and H0ivik (1964) referred to above have, however, clearly shown that primary vestibular fibers are also given off to the caudal (ventral) part of the uvula, the ventral paraflocculus and the most ventral small-celled part of the lateral cerebellar nucleus.
From Walberg, Bowsher and Brodal (1958). VESTIBULAR NUCLEI AND THEIR CONNECTIONS 37 the primary vestibular fibers gave off collaterals which were directed medially. The collaterals gave rise to numerous short side branches; and each side branch showed small thickenings (presumably boutons) and small varicosities along the collateral. Such an arrangement would favour spatially localized transmission of impulses. Another important observation made by Hauglie-Hanssen (1968) was that the terminal and preterminal branches of the primary vestibular fibers differed in morphology, and that it was possible to distinguish between three types (Fig.
