A tiny lobe of the cerebellum or the archicerebellum lying at the posterior border of the middle cerebellar peduncle anterior to the biventer lobule. It is involved in motor control where it regulates balance and eye motion after receiving signals from the middle ear. Fundamental motor skills in the brain can be learned through flocculus since it forms an essential component of the vestibulo-ocular reflex.
