Anatomical terms of neuroanatomy

The anterior lobe of cerebellum is the portion of the cerebellum responsible for mediating unconscious proprioception. Inputs into the anterior lobe of the cerebellum are mainly from the spinal cord.[1]

In alcoholics, it can deteriorate.[2]

It is sometimes equated to the "paleocerebellum".[3]
