The Cerebral peduncles Are brain cylinders composed entirely of nerves. Each human brain has two cerebral peduncles that are united by an interpeduncular fossa. The cerebral peduncles are located in the superior region of the brainstem, just above the annular protuberance.
Cerebral penduncle. Many other nerve bundles also connect to the pons. Cerebral peduncles help transport nerve impulses from the higher part of the brain (cortex) and the brain stem, or lower part of the brain, to other areas of the central nervous system.
Cerebral penduncle. The peduncles adjust the commands by taking into account where the body parts currently are located before directing the movement, and they sometimes slow down the movement. When there is an injury to cerebral peduncles, the symptoms of the injury show up in the part of the body related to the injured peduncle.Cerebral Peduncles Image Diagram - Chart - diagrams and charts with labels.
