Cerebellum

The Cerebellum is a cauliflower-shaped section of the brain. It is located in the hindbrain[?], at the bottom rear of the head, directly behind the pons. The cerebellum is a complex computer mostly dedicated to the intricacies of managing walking and balance. Damage to the cerebellum leaves the sufferer with a gait that appears drunken and is difficult to control.
