  1. Diencephalon
    thalamus and hypothalamus
  2. hypothalamus
    • comprised of nuclei responsible for controlling visceral / metabolic activities
    • such as water balance, temperature, sleep, metabolic function
  3. thalamus
    the principle relay and integration center for sensory information
  4. cerebellum
    • coordinates movements that the cerebrum initiates
    • ensues precise, smooth, finely tuned movements
  5. striatum
    putamen + caudate nucleus
  6. lenticular process
    • putamen + globus pallidus
    • because their nuclei are lens shaped
  7. Basal Ganglia
    function
    parts 3
    • coordination of fine motor movements
    • Parts: caudate nucleus, putamen, globus pallidus
  8. Subcortex contains
    • basal ganglia
    • (figure 11-20 p. 567)
  9. CNS
    sixth lobe
    function
    • limbic lobe
    • not identifiable
    • functional relationship with motivation, sex drive, emotional behavior and affect
  10. Insula
    portion
    involved in
    anterior and posterior portions involved in regulation of hormones and homeostasis
  11. Brainstem 3 parts
    • Midbrain
    • Pons
    • Medulla Oblongata
  12. Brainstem
    2 functions
    damage
    • cranial nerves and their nuclei arise fromt he brainstem
    • basci bodiy functions for life are maintained here (breathing, swallowing)
    • damage to the brainstem can kill someone or make them mbrain dead
