Do You Know How Cerebellum Functions? Trivia Quiz - Quiz

Cerebellum is a part of the body contained in the hindbrain of every vertebrae. The cerebellum plays a major function in every vertebrae animal as it assists in motor control functions of the body. What do you know about this part of your body? Take this quiz to find out.


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Which of these does the cerebellum control? 

    • A.

      Friendship

    • B.

      Movement

    • C.

      Intelligence 

    • D.

      Love 

    Correct Answer
    B. Movement
    Explanation
    The cerebellum is responsible for controlling movement. It receives information from various parts of the brain and sensory systems, and then coordinates and regulates muscle activity, balance, and posture. This allows for smooth and coordinated movements of the body. The cerebellum does not control friendship, intelligence, or love, as these are complex cognitive and emotional processes that involve different areas of the brain.

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    What tone does the cerebellum usually take care of? 

    • A.

      Sensory

    • B.

      Muscle

    • C.

      Grey

    • D.

      Light

    Correct Answer
    B. Muscle
    Explanation
    The cerebellum is responsible for coordinating and controlling voluntary movements, balance, and posture. It receives sensory information from the muscles, joints, and other parts of the body, and uses this information to fine-tune and adjust muscle activity. Therefore, the correct answer is "Muscle" as the cerebellum primarily takes care of muscle tone.

    Which of these functions does the cerebellum not perform?

    • A.

      Thought

    • B.

      Coordination

    • C.

      Equilibrium

    • D.

      Balance

    Correct Answer
    A. Thought
    Explanation
    The cerebellum is responsible for coordinating movement, maintaining balance, and regulating equilibrium. However, it does not play a role in thought processes. Thoughts are primarily controlled by the cerebral cortex, which is responsible for higher cognitive functions such as perception, memory, and decision-making. Therefore, the cerebellum does not perform the function of thought.

    What is the cerebellum usually comprised of?

    • A.

      Equilibrium

    • B.

      Light Matter  

    • C.

      Grey Matter

    • D.

      White Matter

    Correct Answer
    D. White Matter
    Explanation
    The cerebellum is usually comprised of white matter. White matter refers to the regions in the central nervous system that are primarily composed of myelinated axons. In the cerebellum, white matter consists of axonal fibers that transmit signals between different regions of the cerebellum, as well as between the cerebellum and other parts of the brain. This allows for the coordination and regulation of motor movements, balance, and posture.

  • 5. 

    What is one characteristic of the gray matter contained in the cerebellum among these? 

    • A.

      Thin

    • B.

      Balanced

    • C.

      White

    • D.

      Round

    Correct Answer
    A. Thin
    Explanation
    The characteristic of the gray matter contained in the cerebellum is thin. This means that the gray matter in the cerebellum is not thick or bulky, but rather slim or slender in nature.

    What is the folded outer layer of the cerebellum known as? 

    • A.

      Cerebellar Medulla  

    • B.

      Cerebellar layer   

    • C.

      Cerebellar cortex   

    • D.

      Cerebellum cortex

    Correct Answer
    C. Cerebellar cortex   
    Explanation
    The folded outer layer of the cerebellum is known as the cerebellar cortex.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    What differentiates the cortex of the cerebrum from the cerebellum? Its ___

    • A.

      Grey Matter  

    • B.

      White Matter  

    • C.

      Light

    • D.

      Folds

    Correct Answer
    D. Folds
    Explanation
    The cortex of the cerebrum is differentiated from the cerebellum by its folds. These folds, also known as gyri, are present on the surface of the cerebrum and play a crucial role in increasing the surface area of the brain. This increased surface area allows for a larger number of neurons and synapses, which in turn enhances cognitive functions such as memory, attention, and language processing. The cerebellum, on the other hand, is characterized by a smoother surface with fewer folds.

    What is the function of the neurons in the cerebellum? 

    • A.

      Muscle tone   

    • B.

      Equilibrium

    • C.

      Balance

    • D.

      Process Data

    Correct Answer
    D. Process Data
    Explanation
    The function of neurons in the cerebellum is to process data. The cerebellum is responsible for coordinating and regulating movements, as well as controlling balance and posture. Neurons in the cerebellum receive and integrate sensory information from various parts of the body, such as muscles and joints, and process this data to ensure smooth and coordinated movements. This processing of data by the cerebellar neurons allows for precise control and coordination of motor movements.

    What does the cerebellum mean in Latin? 

    • A.

      Brain

    • B.

      Little Brain  

    • C.

      Head

    • D.

      Inner head

    Correct Answer
    B. Little Brain  
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Little Brain". The cerebellum is a part of the brain that is located at the back of the skull. It is responsible for coordinating voluntary movements, maintaining balance, and controlling posture. The term "cerebellum" comes from the Latin word "cerebellum," which means "little brain," referring to its appearance and structure.

    What function does the cerebellar parts perform? 

    • A.

      Motor Control   

    • B.

      Thought

    • C.

      Feelings

    • D.

      Sensitive

    Correct Answer
    A. Motor Control   
    Explanation
    The cerebellar parts perform the function of motor control. The cerebellum is responsible for coordinating voluntary movements, maintaining balance and posture, and fine-tuning motor skills. It receives information from various sensory systems and integrates it to ensure smooth and precise movements. This function is crucial for activities such as walking, writing, and playing sports.
