under thalamus; autonomic nervous system center; houses limbic center for emotion; regulates nearby pituitary gland; houses mammillary body for olfaction hypothalamus
houses pineal body; includes choroid plexus which forms cerebrospinal fluid epithalamus
composed mostly of tracts of nerve fibers; 4 rounded protrusions called corpora quadrigemina are reflex centers involved with vision & hearing midbrain
bulging center part of brain stem; composed of fiber tracts; includes nuclei involved in control of breathing pons
lowest part of brain stem; merges into spinal cord; important fiber tracts; important control centers medulla oblongata
2 hemispheres, right & left; controls balance & equilibrium; provides precise time for skeletal muscle activity & coordination of body movements cerebellum
paired (left & right) superior parts of the brain cerebral hemisphere
