Small GABAergic neurons are inhibitory to the inferior olivary nucleus. Small inhibitory interneurons use both GABA and glycine as neurotransmitters. The Purkinje cell projection to the DCN is inhibitory, but the cortical interneuron influence on the Purkinje cell is inhibitory as well. The situation is further nuanced in that axo-somatic recurrent collaterals of the Purkinje cells provide inhibitory control on the Purkinje cells own output, while a further excitatory feedback to the cerebellar cortex arises from the DCN themselves.

The three major lobar divisions of the cerebellum are the anterior lobe (lobules I through V), the posterior lobe (lobules VI through IX), and the flocculonodular lobe (lobule X). The anterior lobe is separated from the posterior lobe by the primary fissure; and the posterior lobe is separated from the flocculonodular lobe by the posterolateral fissure.
