The cerebellum is an important brain structure. It plays a significant role in coordinating movement and regulating balance by helping to maintain posture and muscle tone and coordinate gait. Notably, it cannot initiate the contraction of muscles. It is subdivided into three lobes; the flocculonodular, anterior, and posterior lobes, and these lobes are separated by two transverse fissures. Cerebellar damage will result in deficits to the aforementioned functions.

Great Lesson with Potential for Improvement through Editing
By Shane D. on 28. August 2023 for Deep Cerebellar Nuclei and Connections of Functional Divisions

Although this video provides helpful information essential to medicine, the video edit with another graphic, illustration, and animated image plus speaker threw me off.

Excellent. Thank you

I really appreciate it, perfectly simple and interesting way of explanation

Dr Canby, you have made the neurologic pathophysiology so much easier for me.. Thanks

Dull lecture that is presented badly with no useful insights. As another reviewer pointed out, it isn't worth watching Craig's content, you are better off going to Youtube for better content.
