Anatomical terms of neuroanatomy

The juxtarestiform body is a subdivision of the inferior cerebellar peduncle, which comprises both the juxtarestiform and restiform bodies.

Function

The juxtarestiform body carries both afferent and efferent fibers connecting the vestibular nuclei and the flocculonodular lobe and fastigial nucleus of the cerebellum.

The juxtarestiform body coordinates balance and eye movements by communication between the vestibular apparatus and the cerebellum.
