An autonomic reflex center involved in maintaining body homeostasis (cardiovascular center, respiratory centers, centers for sneezing, vomiting, hiccupping, swallowing, coughing) Medulla oblongata
Contains the pneumotaxic center to maintain the normal rhythm of breathing Pons
Controls visual reflexes that coordinate head and eye movements when we follow a moving object Midbrain
Associated with the pineal gland, secretes melatonin to induce sleep Epithalamus
The main visceral control center of the body responsible for maintaining homeostasis Hypothalamus
Sorts and "edits" information from sensory areas ascending to the cerebral cortex Thalamus
Receives information from the general sensory receptors in the skin and from proprioceptors in skeletal muscles Primary somatosensory cortex
Integrates sensory inputs (temperature, pressure, etc.) relayed to it to produce an understanding of an object being felt Somatosensory association cortex
Involved in the perception of taste stimuli Gustatory cortex
Important in starting, stopping, and monitoring the intensity of movements executed by the cortex Basal nuclei
Enter the cerebral hemispheres from lower brain or cord centers, and those that leave the cortex to travel to lower areas Projection fibers
Neuron cell bodies Gray matter
Groups of axons in the CNS White matter
Shortage of ACh and structural changes in the brain Alzheimer's disease
Degeneration of dopamine-producing cells in the basal nuclei Parkinson's disease
Seen during deep sleep, during anesthesia; indicate brain damage in awake adults Delta waves
Common in children; abnormal in awake adults Theta waves
Occur when we are mentally alert, as when concentrating on some problem or visual stimulus Beta waves
Indicate a brain that is "idling", a calm, relaxed state of wakefulness Alpha waves
