Abstract

We have prepared an atlas of the human cerebellum using high-resolution magnetic resonance-derived images warped into the proportional stereotaxic space of Talairach and Tournoux. Software that permits simultaneous visualization of the three cardinal planes facilitated the identification of the cerebellar fissures and lobules. A revised version of the Larsell nomenclature facilitated a simple description of the cerebellum. This atlas derived from a single individual was instrumental in addressing longstanding debates about the gross morphologic organization of the cerebellum. It may serve as the template for more precise identification of cerebellar topography in functional imaging studies in normals, for investigating clinical-pathologic correlations in patients, and for the development of future probabilistic maps of the human cerebellum.
