Part of the brain where the optic nerves partially cross, located at the bottom of the brain immediately below the hypothalamus.
Involved in the perception of color, transmits smell information from nose to brain, on the bottom side of the brain
Part of the brainstem, conducts signals from the cerebrum to the cerebellum
Lower half of the brainstem, deals with involuntary functions
Upper ridge on the cerebral cortex
Lower ridge of the cerebral cortex
Divides the cerebellum into an upper and lower half

Visual processing center
is a C-shaped bundle of fibers (axons) in the brain, and carries signals from the hippocampus to the hypothalamus.
It is in the midline, between the left and right lateral ventricles, one of four connected fluid-filled cavities comprising the ventricular system within the human brain
part of the ventricular system of the brain, Each lateral ventricle resembles a C-shaped structure that begins at an inferior horn in the temporal lobe, travels through a body in the parietal lobe and frontal lobe
a wide, flat bundle of neural fibers beneath the cortex in the eutherian brain at the longitudinal fissure. It connects the left and right cerebral hemispheres and facilitates interhemispheric communication.
is a midline symmetrical structure of two halves, within the vertebrate brain, situated between the cerebral cortex and the midbrain. Some of its functions are the relaying of sensory and motor signals to the cerebral cortex, and the regulation of consciousness, sleep, and alertness
contains a number of small nuclei with a variety of functions. One of the most important functions of the hypothalamus is to link the nervous system to the endocrine system via the pituitary gland
is the principal midbrain nucleus of the auditory pathway and receives input from several peripheral brainstem nuclei in the auditory pathway, as well as inputs from the auditory cortex.
