Brain
...  actions like blood pressure, salivation and vomiting. The actions like strolling in a straight line, using a bicycle, picking up a pencil is possible because of a part of the hind brain called cerebellum. The hind brain consists of pons, medulla and cerebellum. As our physique catches chilly and illnesses, our brain also may be affected by serious diseases. Amongst some of the mind  ...

Cerebellum
...  cerebellum is the part of the brain that is responsible for our motor functions, such as walking and writing. It is also being currently researched for participation in other functions such as regulating fear and pleasure, as well as cognitive functions such as attention and language. Even though the cerebellum is part of the brain, it looks like a separate part because it is found underneath  ...

Diencephalon
...  make up each of the lobes of the organ. The basis of their naming depends on their position. You can have names such as the medial, lateral or central nuclei. Together with the basal ganglia and cerebellum, this part of the diencephalon is responsible for the movement coordination of the brain. Hypothalamus The hypothalamus lies just beneath the thalamus. It is the lower part of the  ...

Mesencephalon
...  and other parts of the brain. Meanwhile, the red nucleus is located between the cerebral aqueduct and the cerebral peduncle. It could be found deep in the midbrain. The red nucleus unites with the cerebellum and the cerebral hemispheres so that it will effectively regulate the needed coordination for a human’s posture and motor skills. It absorbs blood rich in oxygen, as well as an  ...

Pons
...  pons relay a variety impulses within the brain, and is located in the metencephalon. Just like the pons, the cerebellum could also be found there. The metencephalon then controls the skeletal muscle contraction. The distinct characteristic of the pons is its circular bulge which lies on the brain’s inferior side. It could be seen between the medulla oblongata and the midbrain. It is  ...

Reticular Formation
...  the cerebrum is the reticular activating system, and it also monitors the amount and the quantity of sensory perception to be accepted by the cerebrum. Lastly, it also sends impulses, allowing the cerebellum to have continuous coordination and smooth motor motion in the skeletal muscle.  ...

Spinal Cord
...  anterior corticospinal tracts. The remaining nerve tracts are called the extrapyramidial tracts. These originate in the brain stems. A variety of synaptic connections cause the cerebral cortex, the cerebellum, and the basic nuclei to produce motion indirectly.  ...

Ventricles Of The Brain
...  the diencephalon, specifically in the thalami. These three ventricles are connected through an opening called the interventricular foramen. The fourth ventricle in the brain is situated between the cerebellum and the pons, and connecting it with the third ventricle is the mesencephalic aqueduct. It then completes the link of these four ventricles, as it is transversed in the midbrain. Although  ...
