Cerebrospinal Fluid acts like a cushion and shock absorber for the brain and the spinal cord.
Cerebrum one of three distinct part of the brain; largest part of the brain; has two hemispheres and four lobes.
Cerebellum located underneath the cerebrum; receives orders from the frontal lobes and sends messages to the muscles throughout the body.
Brain Stem located below the cerebrum and in front of the cerebellum; connects brain to spinal cord.
Spinal Cord main pathway of information connecting the brain to the rest of the body.
Lobe a distinct area of the cerebrum.
Neuron a nerve cell that carries impulses between various parts of the body.
