Anatomical terms of neuroanatomy

On the inferior surface of the cerebellum the vermis is elevated above the level of the hemispheres, but on the under surface it is sunk almost out of sight in the bottom of a deep depression between them; this depression is called the vallecula of the cerebellum, and lodges the posterior part of the medulla oblongata and the inferior vermis which consists of the tuber vermis, pyramid, uvula and nodule.
