Pons Varolii

The pons is also called the pons Varolii (bridge of Varolius), after the Italian anatomist and surgeon Costanzo Varolio (1543–75). This white matterincludes tracts that conduct signals from the brain down to the cerebellum and medulla, and tracts that carry the sensory signals up into the thalamus.The pons in humans measures about 2.5 cm or 1 inch in length. Most of it appears as a broad anterior bulge rostral to the medulla. Posteriorly, it consists mainly of two pairs of thick stalks called cerebellar peduncles. They connect the cerebellum to the pons and midbrain.
