Pons and medulla waking, sleeping, and locomotion
Cerebellum learned skilled movements (think throwing a dart)
reticular formation maintaining general arousal
tectum superior colluculi: receives sensory input from eye inferior colliculi: receives sensory input from ear
red nucleus limb movement
periacquecutal gray species-typical behavior
substantia nigra produces dopamin -- reward-bahaviour and movement initiation
hypothalamus interacts with pituitary gland involved in motivated behaviour
What two parts make up the epithalamus? Pineal Gland and the Habenula
thalamus relay station -collection of nuclei which receive sensory motor inputs -functions to integrate different inputs and project them to various cortical areas
lateral geniculate body receives visual input and routes it to occipital cortex
medial geniculate body receives auditory input and routes it to temporal lobe
ventrolateral posterior nucleus receives somatosensory input and routes it to parietal cortex
ventral anterior nucleus receives motor input from basal ganglia and routes it to frontal (motor) cortex
Basal Ganglia functions controlling and coordinating movement patterns
What makes up the limbic system. hippocampus, amygdala, septum, cingulate gyrus
hippocampus functions in learning and memory
amygdala functions in emotion and behaviour
septum functions in emotional behaviour
Primary areas project to spinal motor systems or receive sensory input (via thalamus)
secondary areas adjacent to primary areas Sensory: primary - secondary Motor: secondary - primary
tertiary areas associated with cortex, located between secondary areas, not specific to sensory to motor information, perform complex functions
fasciculi long tracts that connect one lobe to another
what fascicles connects Brocca's area to Wernicke's area? Arcuate Fisciculus
arcuate fibers short connections between adjacent gyri
mamililiary bodies recollective behaviour (sometimes called part of the thalamus)
Pineal Gland Circadian Rhythm
Habenula hunger and thirst
