The part of the brain that connects to the spinal cord. The brain stem controls functions basic to the survival of all animals, such as heart rate, breathing, digesting foods, and sleeping.
Two peach-size mounds of folded tissue located at the top of the brain stem, the cerebellum is the guru of skilled, coordinated movement
This is the largest brain structure in humans and accounts for about two-thirds of the brain’s mass. It is divided into two sides the left and right hemispheres that are separated by a deep groove down the center from the back of the brain to the forehead.

Receives and processes sensory information from the body including calculating location and speed of objects.
Processes visual data and routes it to other parts of the brain for identification and storage.
Located deep within the brain, it processes new memories for long-term storage.
Located at the top of the brain stem, the thalamus acts as a two-way relay station, sorting, processing, and directing signals from the spinal cord and mid-brain structures up to the cerebrum, and conversely from the cerebrum down the spinal cord to the nervous system.
