Lateral Ventricle -one on either side of brain so 2 -horse shoe shaped -located in cerebral hemisphere
Third Ventricle: Location In Diencephalon
What connects Lateral Ventricle and Third Ventricle? Interventricle Foramen
What connects Third and Fourth Ventricle? Cerebral Aqueduct
Fourth Ventricle 1. lies behind the brainstem 2. connected to central canal of spinal cord
Three surface landmarks of Cerebral Hempisphere 1. Sulcus 2. Fissures 3. Gyrus

Fissures separate major portions of brain
Gyrus twisted brain tissue in between sulci
Five Cerebral Lobes 1. Frontal Lobe 2. Temporal Lobe 3. Parietal Lobe 4. Occipital Lobe 5. Insula
Frontal Lobe 1. Anterior to Central Sulcus 2. Superior to Lateral Sulcus
Parietal Lobe 1. Posterior to Central Sulcus 2. Superior to Lateral Sulcus 3. Anterior to parieto-occipital sulcus
Temporal Lobe 1. Inferior to Lateral Sulcus 2. Anterior to Occipital Lobe
