The cerebellar nuclei, together with certain vestibular nuclei, are the target of the axons of the Purkinje cells of the cerebellar cortex. Each of these nuclei receives a projection from a longitudinal Purkinje cell zone. Climbing fiber projections are organized according to the same zonal pattern. In this chapter, we will review the morphology and the circuitry of the cerebellar nuclei and the inferior olive and the recurrent pathways connecting them.
