central area of the brain.
The hindbrain refers to the
The VERMIS connects the
The ARBOR VITAE is the
white matter of the cerebellum.
The brainstem has ____ major parts.
The brainstem includes the:
(1) midbrain, (2) pons, and (3) medulla oblongata.
The separation between the brainstem and the spinal cord is the
foramen magnum (inside the foramen magnum is the spinal cord, and outside the foramen magnum is spinal cord).
The CORPUS CALLOSUM is the
white matter connecting the cerebral hemispheres.
The VENTRICLES are the
warehouse for cerebrospinal fluid (CSF).
The INTERVENTRICULAR FORAMEN connects the
lateral ventricles to the fourth ventricle.
The CHOROID PLEXUS makes
CSF via ependyma cells that line the ventricles.
____ absorbs CSF and diffuses it into the venous sinuses.
There are ____ ventricles.
The four ventricles of the brain include the
lateral ventricles (there are two), and third and fourth ventricles.
The MOTOR area (for voluntary muscle control) of the brain is the
pre-central sulcus area.
The MOTOR SPEECH area of the brain is the
The SENSORY SPEECH area of the brain is the
The CUTANEOUS SENSORY area of the brain is the
post-central sulcus area.
The AUDITORY area of the brain is the
The VISUAL area of the brain is the
