During embryonic development, the anterior part of the neural tube first forms three cerebral vesicles, which give rise to the cerebrum and related structures: forebrain (prosencephalon), midbrain (mesencephalon), hindbrain (rhombencephalon). The hindbrain subsequently divides into the metencephalon (pons) and the medulla oblongata (lower). The cerebellum develops from the metencephalon. Thus, the cerebellum and the cerebral cortex are connected by numerous neural pathways. Through these pathways, the cerebellum receives information from the cortex, in particular, copies of the motor programs of upcoming movements, and mainly through the dentate-thalamic pathways influences the motor commands sent by the cerebral cortex to the stem motor centers and to the spinal cord.
