|Brain: Emboliform nucleus|
|Sagittal section through right cerebellar hemisphere. The right olive has also been cut sagitally. (Emboliform nucleus not labeled, but region is visible.) )|
|Gray's||subject #187 796|
The emboliform nucleus lies immediately to the medial side of the nucleus dentatus, and partly covering its hilus. It is one among the four pairs of cerebellar nuclei, which are from lateral to medial: the dentate, interposed (emboliform and globose), and fastigial nuclei. These nuclei can be seen using the Weigert method staining.
