  1. Controls higher brain functions, inducing sensory perception, storing memory, reasoning, and determining intelligence; initiates voluntary muscle movements
  2. Relay station for sensory impulses ascending from other parts of the nervous system to the cerebral cortex
    Thalamus (Diencephalon)
  3. Helps maintain homeostasis by regulating visceral activities and by linking the nervous and endocrine systems; regulates body temperature, sleep cycles, emotions and autonomic system control
    Hypothalamus (Diencephalon)
  4. Contains visual reflex centers that move the eyes and head and auditory reflex centers; contains fiber tracts that connect the pons with the cerebrum; contains aqueduct between third and fourth ventricles where CFS follows
    Midbrain (brainstem)
  5. Relays impulses between higher and lower brain regions; helps regulate rate and depth of breathing
    pons (midbrain)
  6. Conducts ascending and descending impulses between the brain and spinal cord; contains cardiac, vasomotor, and respiratory control centers and various non vital reflex control centers
    medulla oblongata (brainstem)
  7. Processes information from other parts of the CNS by the nerve tracts; integrates sensory information concerning the position of the body parts; and coordinates muscle activities and maintains posture
