Flashcards in Randos to Remember Deck (15):
1

All parts of cerebellar cortex receive climbing fiber input and essentially all climbing fibers originate from _____.

cells of the inferior olive

2

Axons from the inferior olive _____ immediately and enter the contralateral inferior cerebellar peduncle.

cross the midline

3

The VA/VL also is the thalamic target for the output from the basal ganglia including the _____ and _____.

caudate and putamen

4

All parts of cerebellar cortex receive ______ input and essentially all climbing fibers originate from cells of the inferior olive.

climbing fiber

5

Name the 3 deep nuclei of the cerebellum.

  1. dentate
  2. interposed
  3. fastigial

6

Axons from the pontine nuclei on one side immediately _____ to enter the middle cerebellar peduncle of the opposite side.

cross the midline

7

Axons from the inferior olive cross the midline immediately and enter the _____.

contralateral inferior cerebellar peduncle

8

The cerebellar cortex sends information only as far as the _____ and the _____.

deep cerebellar nuclei; vestibular nuclei

9

The ______ receives multimodal input and projects to the contralateral cerebellum and the axons of these neurons are the “climbing fiber” input to Purkinje cells.

inferior olivary nucleus (ION)

10

The inferior olivary nucleus (ION) receives multimodal input and projects to the _____ and the axons of these neurons are the “climbing fiber” input to Purkinje cells.

contralateral cerebellum

11

Deep cerebellar nuclei --> superior cerebellar peduncle --> brainstem --> decussate --> ____ and ____

red nucleus and VA/VL

12

Although this is an oversimplification, it helps to remember that the inferior and middle peduncles are the _____ to the cerebellum and the superior peduncle is the ____ from the cerebellum.

  • inferior and middle = inputs
  • superior = output

13

The inferior olivary nucleus (ION) receives multimodal input and projects to the contralateral cerebellum and the axons of these neurons are the “_____” input to ____.

climbing fiber; Purkinje cells

14

Name 4 places mossy fibers come from.

  1. Clarke’s column in the spinal cord
  2. Lateral cuneate nucleus in the caudal medulla
  3. Vestibular Nuclei
  4. Pontine Nuclei

15

Axons from the pontine nuclei on one side immediately cross the midline to enter the ______ of the opposite side.

middle cerebellar peduncle
