Transcript of Brain Anatomy

Grey matter White matter Grey matter is thin and consists of the nerve cell bodies. White matter contains the axons. The grey matter allows messages to be passed throughout the brain. White matter allows messages to be passed from the brain to the rest of the body. To control and regulate the body.

Assist with hand eye coordination.

Allows us to think and feel. It looks like a stem.
Situated beneath the cerebrum
and next to the left of the cerebellum.
Primitive part of the brain FUNCTION
The brainstem is responsible for coordinating and controlling messages for movement and balance.
Involuntary actions such as breathing, heart beat, digestion, blood pressure. FUNCTION:
connects two hemispheres
4 lobes Cerebellum in Latin means little brain.
Located at the base of the brain and behind the brainstem
Divided in two halves. FUNCTION:
Involved with balance, and muscle coordination and movement and posture The right hand side is more involved in creative operations such as imagination and artistic expression. The left hand side controls logical operations such as speech, writing, coordination and mathematics. Each side of the brain also controls different skills. Frontal Lobe
associated with reasoning, planning, parts of speech, movement, emotions, and problem solving
Parietal Lobe
associated with movement, orientation, recognition, perception of stimuli
Occipital Lobe
associated with visual processing
Temporal Lobe
associated with perception and recognition of auditory stimuli, memory, and speech Case 1: John Doe has come to the emergency room as he is having trouble speaking and can only see out of one eye.
What is your diagnosis? What part of the brain might be affected? Why might this be? Case 2: Jane Doe stumbles into your office reaches out to shake your hand but misses. As she describes her symptoms to you she nearly falls over on numerous occasions although her train of thought is clear and concise.
What is your diagnosis? Case 3: Your patient describes that he never feels hungry or thirsty. He continues to eat and drink only because he knows he should but the urge to eat or drink is never there.
What is your diagnosis? Create at least 5 flashcards for different regions of the brain and include their function. SCIENCE CONTENT
Lots of Writing and Note Taking Ahead On your diagram, label and outline each section of the brain described Contains the mid-brain, pons and medulla The brain is like a computer.

It is an organ that controls and regulates how the body functions.

It is made up of more than 100 billion nerve cells called neurones.

Research has found that each nerve cell is connected to about 25 000 other nerve cells.

These nerve cells creates a nerve pathway that allows the brain to send messages as electrical impulses What is the Brain?
