The decussation of superior cerebellar peduncle is the portion of the superior cerebellar peduncle which crosses into the midbrain. This decussation comprises cerebellothalamic tract or dentatothalamic tract and cerebellorubral tract which arises from globose nucleus and emboliform nucleus to contralateral red nucleus to become rubrospinal tract.
