The cerebellum is a rounded structure located behind the brain stem, to which it is linked by thick nerve tracts. It accounts for about 11% of the whole brain weight and appears similar to the cerebrum (the main mass of the brain). It is concerned mainly with the maintenance of posture and balance and the coordination of movement.
