Matter Behind the Cerebellum
Hi there, I just recently had a MRI of my brain in January 2010 and I saw something that perked my curiosity. And, although I do have an appointment to see a neurologist for other reasons, it's still a couple months out from now. The thing that caught my eye was a bit of matter that appears to be an extension of the brain behind and almost below the cerebellum (see the photo I linked). I did have a brain injury in 2000 with multiple fractures, I was about 12 years old, walked in front of a pickup going 25-30 mph... though, I'm not sure if that's at all related to this. I was just wondering what it was (brain? cerebellum? cancer??), if its unusual or not, and what sort of effects it might have on my brain function. Any thoughts/speculation much appreciated!
