  1. What are these?
    Image Upload
    Descending Corticospinal and Corticobulbar tracts- nerve fibres that deal with motor function
  2. What is this?
    Image Upload
    Dentate Nucleus- Links the cerebellum with the rest of the brain, and has a serrated, tooth-like edge
  3. What is this?

    Image Upload
    Caudate Nucleus- involved with motor processes, but also growing evidence for it being involved in sensory and cognitive processes- Middleton & Strick (2000)
  4. What is this?

    Image Upload
    Choroid Plexus- produces cerebrospinal fluid
  5. What is this?

    Image Upload
    Fornix- carries signals from the hippocampus to the mammillary bodies (that handle the limbic system)
  6. What is this?

    Image Upload
    Amygdala- handles memory, decision making, and emotional reactions
  7. What is this?
    Image Upload
    Lateral Geniculate Nucleus
  8. What is this?
    Image Upload
    Globus Pallidus- part of the extrapyramidal motor system, that causes involuntary movements
  9. What is this?
    Image Upload
    Putamen- part of the basal ganglia, regulates movement and influences reinforcement and implicit learning
  10. What is this?
    Image Upload
    Corona Radiata- white matter sheet that carries most of the info to and from the cerebral cortex
  11. What is this?
    Anterior Commisure-  bundle of white matter nerve fibres that connect the two hemispheres of the temporal lobe
  12. What is this?
    Image Upload
    Hippocampus- limbic system, STM and navigation
  13. What is this?

    Image Upload
    Lateral Geniculate Nucleus- deals with vision, and is where the optic nerve (that becomes the optic tract) terminates
  14. What is this?
    Image Upload
    Choroid Plexus of the lateral ventricle (produces cerebrospinal fluid)
  15. Image Upload
    Pulvinar nuclei - important in speech, vision and motor production
