As you are reading these words on the screen, what part of your brain is allowing you to perform the complex, conscious intellectual task of reading and comprehension? Cerebrum
Involved in hearing and smell Temporal lobe
General sensory functions, such as touch and taste Parietal lobe
Processes visual input and helps store visual memories Occipital lobe
Voluntary motor functions, verbal communication and personality Frontal lobe

Cranial nerve XI Accessory
Cranial nerve XII Hypoglossal
Cranial nerve VII Vestibulocochlear
Cranial nerve X Vagus
Cranial nerve IX Glossopharyngeal
Cranial nerve I Olfactory
Cranial nerve II Optic
Cranial nerve III Oculomotor
Cranial nerve IV Trochlear
Cranial nerve V Trigeminal
Cranial nerve VI Abducens
Conducts impulses for equilibrium and hearing Vestibulocochlear nerve
Vision Optic nerve
Innervates visceral smooth muscle and cardiac muscle Vagus nerve
Innervates pharynx & secretion of parotid salivary gland Glossopharyngeal
Innervates muscles of mastication Trigeminal nerve
Innervates intrinsic and extrinsic tongue muscles Hypoglossal nerve

Which of the following is not a role of astrocytes in the formation and function of the blood-brain barrier? Allows all medications to enter the brain tissue
Left Hemisphere: function Speech, writing; Left ear; Main language center; Calculation; Right visual half field
Right Hemisphere: function Right ear; Spatial concepts; Left visual half field
A person who can understand a sentence, but would have trouble repeating it, may have a problem in Broca’s area
Which language area provides understanding of the spoken and written word? Wernicke’s area
What structure is essential in storing memories and forming long-term memory? Hippocampus
Hypothalamus: function Regulates hunger and thirst;Regulates the autonomic nervous system ;Regulates circadian rhythms; Regulates body temperature
Thalamus: function Relay center for sensory input; Arousal from sleep
Releasing and inhibiting hormones, produced by the hypothalamus, are needed to control the Anterior pituitary gland
The area of the brain that processes visual, auditory, and touch stimuli and keeps us in a state of mental alertness is the Reticular activating system (RAS)
At 4 weeks old, the embryonic forebrain is called the Prosencephalon
The cerebral cortex is a region of the brain containing ____________ matter. Gray
Located within the diencephalon is the _____________ ventricle. Third
CSF helps control the chemical environment surrounding the brain. True
Microglial cells help form the blood-brain barrier. False
Removal of the left cerebral hemisphere would prevent voluntary movement of the right side of the body. True
Sensory information from a painful stimulus on the skin will be received by the Primary somatosensory cortex
Difficulty comprehending speech may indicate a problem with the Wernicke area (involved with speech comprehension)
The thalamus serves as an information filter
Respiratory centers are located in the pons. True
The limbic system is heavily involved with processing emotions, so it is also known as the emotional brain. True
Damage to the RAS may result in unconsciousness. True (RAS is involved with keeping the brain awake, alert, and conscious)
