- Basal Ganglia
- pituitary gland
- Cerebral Cortex
- spinal cord
- a master endocrine gland
- b The outermost layer of the cerebral hemisphere which is composed of gray matter. Cortices are asymmetrical. Both hemispheres are able to analyze sensory data, perform memory functions, learn new information, form thoughts and make decisions.
- c pathway for neural fibers traveling to and from the brain; controls simple relfexes
- d Subcortical gray matter nuclei. Processing link between thalamus and motor cortex. Initiation and direction of voluntary movement. Balance (inhibitory), Postural reflexes. Automatic movement
- e controls heartbeat and breathing
5 Multiple choice questions
- processing of sensory input. Body orientation (proprioception)
- Primary visual reception and association
- controls maintenance functions such as eating; helps govern endocrine system; linked to emotion and reward
- helps control arousal
- Sequential Analysis: systematic, logical interpretation of information. Interpretation and production of symbolic information:language, mathematics, abstraction and reasoning. Memory stored in a language format.
5 True/False questions
Temporal Lobe → Primary visual reception and association
thalamus → controls maintenance functions such as eating; helps govern endocrine system; linked to emotion and reward
right hemisphere → Holistic Functioning: processing multi-sensory input simultaneously to provide "holistic" picture of one's environment. Visual spatial skills. Holistic functions such as dancing and gymnastics are coordinated by the right hemisphere. Memory is stored in auditory, visual and spatial modalities.
pons → relays messages between lower brain centers and cerebral cortex
Corpus Collosum → communication between the two hemispheres
