The condition of the iris was also found to be affected on irritation of the cerebellum, which causes contraction of the pupils, more particularly of that on the same side as the irritation. The pupils dilate on stimulation of the posterior half of the superior and middle frontal convolutions, and contract on stimulation of the angular gyrus.
