nerves of brain

what makes up the diencephalon thalamus,hypothalamus
3 parts that mke up brain stem midbrain,pons,medulla oblongata
cerebellum little brain
meninge 3 layers of connective tissue surounds brain and spinal to form complete enclosure
outer most meninge dura matter
function of dural sinuses drainage of blood coming from brain tissue
innermost meninge that follow contour of brain pia mater
how does CSF get from lateral ventricles to third ventricles formina
cerebral cortex outer nervous tissue of the cerebral hemispheres in grey matter
gyrus folds forming elevated portions
sylcus shallow grooves of cortex
what seperates the frontal and parietal lobes central sulcus
which lobe contains the primary sensory area that interprets impulses from skin parietal lobe
which lobe contains visual areas occipital lobe
where is the occipital lobe located posterior to the parietal lobe and extends over the cerebellum
person suffered damage to the auditory association will have problem with interpreting sound
person with damage to the broca area will have trouble with producing speech
what forms the lateral wall of the third ventricle two parts of the thalmus
what does the hypo thalmus control body temp,water balance,sleep, appetite,some emotions(fear,pleasure)

cerebral palsy caused by brain damage befor or during birth process,diverse muscular disorders,slight weakness of lower extremity muscles,paralysis of all 4 extremities,speech muscles
epilepsy chronic disorder involving an abnormality of the brains electrical activity w/ or w/out apparent changes in nervous tissue
most brain tumors are classafied as gliomas
epidural hematoma bleeding between the dura matter and the skull
what causes cerebral concussion blow to the head or from sudden movementof the brain against the skull as in violent shaking
effects of cerebral concussion loss of conciousness,headache,dizziness,vomiting,paralysis and impared brain function

in bell palsy facial paralysis is caused by damage of which nerve facial nerve
trigeminal neuralgia sever spasmadic pain affecting the fifth cranial nerve
I (1)olfactory sense of smell
II (2)optic impulses from eye to brain
III(3)oculomotor controls contraction of eye muscles
IV (4)trochlear supplies one eye ball
V(5)trigeminal impulses from eye,upper and lower jaw to brain
VI(6)abducens controls eyeball muscles
VII(7)facial controls muscles of facial expression,sensation of taste
VIII(8)vestibulocochlear impulses from hearing and equilibrium from inner ear
