The pons is a structure located on the brain stem, named after the Latin word for bridge or the 16th-century Italian anatomist and surgeon Costanzo Varolio (pons Varolii). It is superior to the medulla oblongata, inferior to the midbrain, and ventral to the cerebellum. In humans and other bipeds this means it is above the medulla, below the midbrain, and anterior to the cerebellum. This white matter includes tracts that conduct signals from the cerebrum down to the cerebellum and medulla, and tracts that carry the sensory signals up into the thalamus.
