Brain part 2

  1. 1. Brain, part 2 (pg 12)
  2. 2. Diencephalon• In center of brain, under limbic lobe
  3. 3. Diencephalon• In center of brain, under limbic lobeContains:1. Thalamus: Relays sensory impulses (except smell) to the correct part of the cerebral cortex for analysis
  4. 4. Diencephalon• In center of brain, under limbic lobeContains:1. Thalamus: Relays sensory impulses (except smell) to the correct part of the cerebral cortex for analysis2. Hypothalamus: Controls autonomic nervous system, Regulates emotional responses, behavior, body temperature, food intake, water balance, thirst, sleep-wake cycles, and the endocrine system
  5. 5. Diencephalon• In center of brain, under limbic lobeContains:1. Thalamus: Relays sensory impulses (except smell) to the correct part of the cerebral cortex for analysis2. Hypothalamus: Controls autonomic nervous system, Regulates emotional responses, behavior, body temperature, food intake, water balance, thirst, sleep-wake cycles, and the endocrine system3. Epithalamus: Contains pineal gland, which produces melatonin (causes sleepiness)
  6. 6. Brain Stem• Region between the diencephalon and the spinal cord
  7. 7. Brain Stem• Region between the diencephalon and the spinal cordContains1. Midbrain: Most superior portion. Contains auditory and visual reflex centers
  8. 8. Brain Stem• Region between the diencephalon and the spinal cordContains1. Midbrain: Most superior portion. Contains auditory and visual reflex centers2. Pons: Bulging middle portion of brain stem. Forms a bridge connecting the two sides of the cerebellum and connecting the cerebrum with the spinal cord. Helps regulate breathing movements
  9. 9. Brain Stem3. Medulla oblongata: Continuous with the spinal cord at the foramen magnum. Area where motor nerve fibers cross over, so that the right side of the brain controls the left side of the body and vice versa. Contains cardiac center (adjusts heart rate), vasomotor center (regulates blood pressure by changing the diameter of the blood vessels) and the respiratory center (regulates breathing). Also contains centers involved in coughing, sneezing, swallowing, and vomiting
  10. 10. Cerebellum• Second largest portion of the brain
  11. 11. Cerebellum• Second largest portion of the brain• Located below the occipital lobe
  12. 12. Cerebellum• Second largest portion of the brain• Located below the occipital lobe• Consists of white matter covered with a thin layer of gray matter, the cerebellar cortex. White matter forms branches called the arbor vitae
  13. 13. Cerebellum• Second largest portion of the brain• Located below the occipital lobe• Consists of white matter covered with a thin layer of gray matter, the cerebellar cortex. White matter forms branches called the arbor vitae• Controls subconscious contractions of skeletal muscles necessary for coordination, posture, and balance
  14. 14. Cerebellum• Second largest portion of the brain• Located below the occipital lobe• Consists of white matter covered with a thin layer of gray matter, the cerebellar cortex. White matter forms branches called the arbor vitae• Controls subconscious contractions of skeletal muscles necessary for coordination, posture, and balance• Coordinates skeletal muscles to produce smooth muscle movement, rather than jerky, trembling motion
