The striking anatomical similarity between the cerebellum and the cerebellar-like sensory nuclei is that they share a molecular layer organization in which the apical dendrites of the projection neurons receive input from many thousands of parallel fibers (1, 2).
The cerebellar-like sensory nuclei receive primary afferent input from octavolateralis sensory systems, and relay that activity to midbrain levels.
