Issues in the Cerebellum article[edit]

The Cerebellum article is a candidate for publication in Wikiversity Journal of Medicine (Wikiversity draft located here). When published, the snapshot in Wikiversity will be easier for external sources to cite, and it will give clear credit to those who have contributed the most to creating the article. However, first it needs some amendment in regard to the issues found in by the peer reviewer, copied to here:

The article is very informational and is written in an encyclopedic voice. It is written at a scholarly level while still maintaining enough readability for lay readers. Though, I suggest a few changes (highlighted in the attached pdf).

1. While the article provides a comprehensive overview of the cerebellum in terms of its structure and functions, certain aspects of its anatomy are still lacking:
- Information on blood supply should be added (superior cerebellar artery, anterior inferior cerebellar artery, and posterior inferior cerebellar artery), perhaps with illustrations.
- Its connections to the brainstem (the three cerebellar peduncles) and tracks (e.g., cerebellothalamic tract) should be mentioned.

2. Information on cerebellar anomalies should also be added to section 'Clinical significance', e.g., Arnold-Chiari malformation, Dandy-Walker syndrome, etc.

Other comments:
1. I notice some missing citations at several locations:
- Page 1, 'Most of them derive from....., Purkinje cell receives two dramatically...., The basic concept of Marr-Albus.....
- Page 5, last paragraph of section 1.2.1 Purkinje cell, The most popular concept of their function....
- Page 7, section 2 Function, last paragraph, Kenji Doya has argued......
- Page 9, second paragraph of section 2.3 Theories and computational methods, Perhaps the earliest "performance" theory...

2. Page 3, Figure: Microcircuitry of the cerebellum, abbreviation of CFC is lacking.
3. Page 7, section 1.2.5 Deep nuclei, use the word 'supply' instead of 'innervate'.

Also, User:Tony1 asked what "its" refers to for the sentence "This complex neural organization gives rise to a massive signal-processing capability, but almost all of its output passes through a set of small deep cerebellar nuclei lying in the interior of the cerebellum."

As this is among Wikipedia's featured articles, I think it is important to address these matters. Also, please give me a note if you think you think you've made substantial contributions to this article to have your name among the authors in the Wikiversity article. In that case, your real name should be used rather than your username.

Looking for feedback on a tool on Visual Editor to add open license text from other sources[edit]

Hi all

I'm designing a tool for Visual Editor to make it easy for people to add open license text from other sources, there are a huge number of open license sources compatible with Wikipedia including around 9000 journals. I can see a very large opportunity to easily create a high volume of good quality articles quickly. I have done a small project with open license text from UNESCO as a proof of concept, any thoughts, feedback or endorsements (on the Meta page) would be greatly appreciated.

Redirects for Greek-language anatomical terms[edit]

Please comment at this discussion at RFD that boils down to the question of whether we should have redirects for the Greek-language anatomical terms. For example, should Hepar redirect to Liver or Enkephalos to Brain? Uanfala (talk) 20:18, 6 July 2016 (UTC)

Diagram "penis sizes" – correct chart, spelling/grammar?[edit]

Hi, what do you think about the diagram and it's description in #Studies on penis size? I'm not a native speaker – feel free to correct. I'm worry, it's not correct and nobody registers… ;-) --Gsälzbär (talk) 16:46, 9 July 2016 (UTC)
