Cerebellum

This area of our brain is for balance and motor funtion,The cerebellum
receives sensory input from the spinal cord, motor input from the cortex
and basal ganglia and position information from the vestibular system.
It then integrates this information and influences outgoing motor pathways
from the brain to coordinate movements.The cerebellum may also be
involved in language (fine muscle contractions of the lips and larynx),
as well as other cognitive functions.
