Cerebellum

(En español: Cerebelo)

Say: sair-uh-beh-lum

Yo-yoing, walking, playing soccer - you couldn't do any of it without this small but powerful part of the brain. The cerebellum controls balance, coordination, and movement. It's way in the back of the brain, down low and near the spinal cord.
