In order to understand the anatomy and the connections of the cerebrum and the cerebellum, it will be necessary to present a cursory view of the general structure of the central nervous system. For the purpose of description it will be advantageous to divide the cerebro-spinal axis into three portions, which may be compared with each other by similarity of parts, though differing in their arrangement. The three divisions of the axis which I shall make are, the spinal cord, the cerebellum and the cerebrum. Each of these parts is divided into lateral halves by a median fissure. The lateral halves are united in the median line by a commissure; each portion encloses a cavity or ventricle which is continuous with that of the others, and each is composed of gray matter, of motor and sensory function, with commissures of white matter extending between the gray masses, or the nerve
