Condition where part of the the cerebellum descends through an opening at the base of the skull, putting pressure on both the cerebellum and spinal cord. Normal cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) flow is disrupted and extreme pressure gradients result in fluid accumulations (hydromyelia and/or syringomyelia) within the spinal cord. Also called Chiari-like malformation.

A region of a neuron which contains most of the cytoplasm, the nucleus, and other organelles. It relays impulses from the dendrites to the axon.

The cerebrospinal fluid-filled space that runs longitudinally through the entire length of the spinal cord. It is connected to the ventricular system of the brain.

Spinal cord injury syndrome associated with damage to the central portion of the spinal cord. It is characterized by bilateral weakness of distal and proximal muscles in the legs, bladder dysfunction, and a variable degree of sensory loss below the level of injury.

The brain and spinal cord. In vertebrates, the brain is protected by the skull and the spinal cord is protected by vertebrae and both are covered by meninges.

Relating to the head.
A disease resulting in premature degeneration of the cells in the cerebellum and leading to balance and coordination problems; likely caused by a metabolic defect.
A congenital disorder where the cerebellum does not form or mature normally before birth, causing signs related to poor balance and incoordination.
Inflammation of the cerebellum.
The opening in the subarachnoid space of the brain created by a separation of the arachnoid and pia mater. This large space is filled with cerebrospinal fluid and located between the cerebellum and medulla. This is where the needle is inserted and cerebrospinal fluid withdrawn during a cervical spinal tap.
