Transcript of How Your Brain Works while Driving A Car
By: MacKenzie Webster
The Medulla would increase your heartbeat and/or breathing if in an acident or if you are really nervous. the medulla would control your heartbeat and breathing in all situations
The Pons would help you resond quickly to other things happening around you. it works hand-in-hand with the cerebellum

the reticular formation would help you process things like light colors and people stopping quickly.
the thalamus helps you react to sight, touch, taste, and hearing. it does not help you react to smell.
the hypothalamus is what makes you feel emotions and it maintains your body's temperature. this would help if you are a NASCAR driver becuase the hypothalamus would keep your body cool
Now you know how different parts of the brain react while driving!!
the Amygdala would make you feel anger or fear. some examples of when you feel anger or fear while driving are:
getting pulled over with an expired registration
sliding on ice
the hippocampus helps put away specific information as memories.
having a nice drive during fall
hearing a hilarious joke
the corpus callosum would help all the parts of the brain connect. without the corpus callosum, the other parts of the brain would not work properly
The frontal lobe help you react to things happening in the environment around you. also, it helps you plan things. this would be helpful when trying to figure out where to drive to.
the parietal lobe would register the sensations of feeling the wheel, gas pedal,etc.
