Cerebellum from a brain. Multiphoton fluorescence micrograph (MFM) of a section through the cerebellum from a human brain, showing the inner white matter (red) and outer grey matter (blue). The white matter mainly contains axons, which pass nerve impulses to the brain's outer cortex. The grey matter is made up of two layers of neurons (nerve cells), the molecular layer (dark brown/orange) and the granular layer (orange). The cerebellum controls sensory perception, motor control and coordination.
