Term Detail
MP term:abnormal cerebellum vermis morphology
Synonym: abnormal cerebellar vermis morphology
Synonym: abnormal spinocerebellum morphology vermis part
Synonym: abnormal vermis morphology
Synonym: cerebellum vermis dysplasia
MP id: MP:0000864
Definition: any structural anomaly of the narrow medial zone between the two hemispheres of the cerebellum that is delimited by two longitudinal furrows; it may be continuous with the cerebellar hemispheres in some areas of the cerebellum, e.g., dorsally, or separated by deeper fissues in others (e.g., ventrally); it receives inputs from the spinocerebellar tracts which carry to the vermis information on the position and balance of the torso, and it sends projections to the fastigial nucleus of the cerebellum, which then sends output to the vestibular nuclei
