It is associated with the nodulus of the vermis; together, these two structures compose the vestibular part of the cerebellum.
At its base, the flocculus receives input from the middle ears vestibular system and regulates balance. Many floccular projections descend to the spinal cord and connect to the motor nuclei involved in control of eye movement.
Cerebellar development and plasticity: perspectives for motor coordination strategies, for motor skills, and therapy.
Jan 01, 2005; ABSTRACT The role of the mammalian cerebellum ranges from motor coordination, sensory-motor integration, motor learning, and...
