The fundamental architecture of the cerebellum is concealed within a terminological forest - transverse zones and stripes, longitudinal zones and microzones, patches, etc. To make things worse, the same term is used in different contexts to describe quite different patterns of spatial localization. Here we consider the possibility that this complexity hides the fact that the cerebellar cortex contains only one map, which has been charted in various ways.
