Hypothalamus: Control Hunger, Thirst and Body Temperature.
Pineal Gland: Melatonin and sleep patterns
Cerebellum: Coordination
Cerebrum: Consciousness, Comprehension, Purposeful and movement
2.)know the connection between the two sides of the brain.- the two hemispheres Corpus Callosum
3.) What are the fissures- the central sulcus, what's on what side and what is on the other and what it separates. or the longitudinal
Fissure/Central Sulcus: Separates the parietal Lobe from the Frontal Lobe
Fissure/Lateral: Run roughly horizontally on the lateral surface of the cerebral hemispheres, one on each side.
Fissure/Transverse: Separates cerebrum from cerebellum.
Fissure/Longitudinal divides the cerebrum into right and left cerebral hemispheres.

8) what happens if your brain is deprived of blood for a few seconds? you lose consciousness-4-6 minutes it starts to die.
