The Brain What Organ System
does the Brain Belong to? The nervous system, which allows to body to move accordingly. The Brain allows the nervous system function properly, to do the things you want to be able to do such as, play sports, running and most of all stay alive by allowing your heart to beat and helping your digestive system to work properly.without the brain we cannot live in a normal life. Nervous System The nervous system is your body's communication center. The central nervous system is made out of the, spinal cord, and the peripheral nervous system. what is the peripheral system? Well it is, a nervous system that is outside of the brain and the spinal cord. the spinal cord is made out of nerves, going up and down the spine. Lobes of cerebral cortex By: Tracy and Joanna The cerebrum is the largest part of the brain but the cerebrum cortex is divided into four lobes and they each have different jobs. The occipital lobe shows us visual image(visual processing)and,the frontal lobe helps us (helps us think,talk and etc).The temporal lobe helps us keep our memory,recognition,and etc. Also parietal lobe
helps us move. The Brain Steam Behind the limbic system ,there is a brain steam. It's responsible for breathing,heartbeat and blood pressure. The brain steam contains: midbrain, pons, and medulla. http://serendip.brynmawr.edu/bb/kinser/Structure1.html http://kidshealth.org/parent/general/body_basics/brain_nervous_system.html The Brain's Way of Function Although the brain is
quite large. Many people
do not know that,

Left handed people's brain
will most often be using
the right side of their brain.

But as right hand people, they most often use the left side of their brain (shown in this picture). Limbic System The limbic system is mostly referred to as the part of the "emotional" side of the brain is buried within the cerebrum.

These system contains:
Thalamus,Hypothalamus,Amygdala Hippocampus Hypothalamus Hypothalamus is a part of the limbic system,it is located under the thalamus in the brain. Function: It controls your sleep, appetite, thirst and hunger Thalamus It is also part of the limbic system,it is located in the inner portion in the brain. It's in the center The thalamus controls your sensory Pituitary Gland The pituitary hangs below of the rest of the limbic system It's job controls your hormone and helps to turn your food into energy Pineal Gland It controls your growing and maturity levels Amygdala Amygdala is an almond shape it is also located in the inner part of the brain It's function controls your emotion, like when you are sad/happy/surprised and etc Hippocampas The hippocampas is a crescent shape it is located in the temporal lobe,in front of the limbic system The hippocampas helps you store your memory, it is also functioning when you are learning something Mid - brain The mid brain is located in the middle of the brain behind the frontal lobes The mid brain helps you control your breathing ,swallowing reflexes and etc Pinal gland is located in the inner part of the brain Thank you :D
-Joanna http://library.thinkquest.org/J002391/functions.html How does the brain interact with other organs? The brain is mostly connected to all organs of the body. Such as the heart, eyes and much more. The brain like all the other organs is extremely important.

The heart:
It makes sure the blood cells get to their designated limb or part of the body. Overall the brain helps blood to travel through your body.

The eyes:
The brain send the messages to eyes tell it where you want to look or have vision of. This way you know what you are doing and what you need to face or focus on.
There are still many things that the brain is connected to but the eyes and the heart are the most important so far.
