What Portion of the Brain Controls Muscular Coordination?

The cerebrum, the cerebellum and the brain stem are all integral parts of coordinating muscular movement. The brain is part of a vast network, known as the nervous system, which is responsible for all muscle movement, according to Johns Hopkins University.

The cerebellum, located at the rear base of the brain, coordinates voluntary muscle movements with the assistance of the cerebrum. Involuntary muscle movements are coordinated by the brain stem in league with the cerebrum, notes Johns Hopkins University. More specifically, the medulla is the control center of the heart and lungs, the frontal lobe is responsible for bodily movements and the pons controls eye and facial muscle movements.
