    • (no protein)







    ( superficial cortex)

  12. WHAT IS THE WHITE MATTER
    • MYELINATED NERVE FIBERS
    • (THOSE W/ FATTY WHITE PROTEIN COVERINGS)

    (internal)
  13. MOTOR AREAS MOVEMENT IS CONTROLED_____

    VOLUNTARY
  14. THE CONSCIOUS AREA OF THE CORTEX IS
    SENSORY
  15. AREA IN CORTEX THAT GIVES MEANING TO THE IMFORAMATION WE RECEIVE, AND STORES IN MEMORY
    SENSATION
  16. EACH HEMISPHERE OF THE BRAIN CONTROLS THE____SIDE OF THE BODY
    OPPOSITE
  17. MIDDLE PART OF THE BRAIN
    CORPUS COLLOSUM
  18. FORMS THE CENTRAL CORE OF THE FOREBRAIN
    DIENCEPHALON
  19. DIENCEPHALON CONISTS OF 3 PARTS
    • THALAMUS
    • HYPOTHALAMUS
    • EPITHALAMUS(PINEAL GLAND)
  20. FUNCTION OF PINEAL GLAND
    SECRETES MELATONIN WHICH INDUCES SLEEP
  21. FUNCTION OF MEDULLA OBLONGATA

    • HELPS MAINTAIN EQUILIBRIUM
    • CARDIOVASCULAR
    • RESPIRATORY
    • VARIOUS OTHER CENTES(VOMITING, SWALLOWING
