Anatomy unit 2 nervous system brain dissection notes

  1. 1. ANATOMY Unit 2 Notes: Brain Dissections
  2. 2. (1) Finding the Front + Back • Back = Tail Hanging Off (Brain Stem) • Front = The Other End
  3. 3. (2) The Sequence Of The Lobes • Front to Straight Back: – Frontal – Parietal – Occipital – Cerebellum • Looking at the Side = Temporal • The “Tail” = Brain Stem
  4. 4. (3) Finding Temporal Structures • Pituitary Gland: Looks like a little nodule hanging off the center, bottom of the side. • Corpus Callosum: A thin line of tissue, usually lighter in color, right on the side of the exposed brain. • Thalamus + Hypothalamus: Area underneath corpus callosum.
  5. 5. (4) Finding Brain Stem Structures • Pons: Swollen bump, closest to rest of brain. • Medulla Oblongata: Portion closest to the end of “tail”. • Midbrain: In between the pons + medulla.
