lateral zone of the cerebellum
The term lateral zone of the cerebellum refers to a subdivision of the cerebellum based on connectivity. It includes the dentate nucleus and the most lateral portions of the anterior lobe of the cerebellum and posterior lobe of the cerebellum with which the nucleus is reciprocally connected ( Carpenter-1983 ). Some authors use the term to refer only to the cortical component of the circuit. See Anthoney-1994 for a discussion of differences in the use of this term.
