Related to cerebellar lobe: molecular layer
One of the three major divisions of the cerebellum. The anterior lobe or paleocerebellum is largely concerned with coordinating posture and with the muscle tone of the trunk and limbs. The posterior lobe or neocerebellum is in a loop with the cerebral cortex and is concerned with muscle coordination and cybernetic adjustment of movements. The flocculonodular lobe or archicerebellum is part of the vestibular system and is concerned with balance.
