The cerebellum (Latin neurocranium) is the part of the skull that protects the brain. In humans, the cerebellum is larger than the facial part of the skull (viscerocranium). This ratio is even more pronounced in the newborn's skull. The cranium consists of a cranial vault (calvaria) and a cranii base. The cranial vault consists of the frontal bone, two parietal bones, the occipital bone and the temporal bone. The cranial base then the temporal, cuneiform and olfactory bones. The bones are joined together by seams.
