The hemispheres together with the vermis of the cerebellum are also divided from anterior to posterior into 3 phylogenetic (as well as functional) divisions or lobes. These are the Anterior Lobe, the large Posterior Lobe, and, the oldest part of the cerebellum – the Flocculonodular Lobe. The latter is made up of the Nodulus of the vermis and the paired Flocculi of the hemispheres.
