molecular layer of the cerebellar cortex
The term molecular layer of the cerebellar cortex is a cytoarchitectural term denoting the most superficial layer of the cerebellar cortex. This layer is characterized by basket and stellate cells. The term plexiform layer of cerebellar cortex is a synonym based on the myeloarchitecture, which consists of thin, densely packed axons coursing parallel to the long axis of the cerebellar folia, delicate terminal axons and rich dendritic ramifications ( Carpenter-1983 ).
