brain anatomy and cranial nerves

reasoning and judgement frontal lobe
F: cognition and visual processing parietal lobe
verbal memory temporal lobe
visual perception occipital lobe
fold in cerebral cortex of brains of vertebrae F: seoerates frontal from parietal central sulcus
deep and most prominent of the cortal fissures of the brain F: seperates frontal from temporal lateral sulcus
deepest and grooves between medial surface of cerebral hemispheres F: seperates the two hemispheres longitudinal fissure
shhet of neural tissue that is the outermost to the cerebrum F; covers cerebrumm + cerebellum cerebral cortex
medial surface of left cerebral hemispphere F; self awareness and laughter gyri
grooves in the surface of the brain F; helps divide the brain into four lobes sulci
thick band of nerve fibers F; divides cerebrum into two hemispheres corpus callosum
large, dull, lobbed mass of gray matter F; sensory perception thalamus
part of brain that contains a number of small nuclei w/a variety of functions F; control center for many autonomic functions hypothalamus
funnel-shaped cavity or organ F; releases hormones vasopressin and oxytocin infundibulum
endocrine gland F; produces hormones pituitary gland
posterior segment of diencephalon F; houses the pineal gland epithalamus
small endocrine gland F; secrete hormones pineal gland
*cant see it* vascular proliferation of the cerebral 3rd ventricle F; regulate intraventricular pressure choroid plexus
*BALLS OF THE BRAIN* pair of small round bodies F; process recognition memory mammilary bodies
*looks like tree* cerebellar white matter F; brings sensory + motor info to and from cerebellum arbor vitae
narrow middle zone occurring between the 2 hemispheres F; proprioception vermis
integral part of the brains pathways F; communication and coordination center between 2 hemispheres pons
lower half of the brainstem F; control center for breathing, blood pressure, and heart beat medulla oblongata
four colliculi located on the dorsal aspect of the midbrain F; visual and auditory reflexes corpora quadrigemina
two small rounded elevations situated on dorsal aspect of the midbrain F; visual function superior colliculi
mass of nerves that forms greater part of the back of the midbrain F; reflex centers for hearing inferior colliculi
*under corpus callosum* largest of the ventricles; communicating cavity in brain F; protection of brain lateral ventricles
lies in the center of the brain F; protection third ventricle
*between cerebellum and brain stem* protection of the brain fourth ventricle
channels that connect lateral ventricle w/ 3rd ventricle F; connects lateral ventricle w/ 3rd interventricular foramen
narrow channel F; connects 3rd and 4th ventricle cerebal aqueduct
