Diagram Of A Labeled Brain
The brain can provide us with the capacity to observe, to feel/understand the universe and remember huge amounts of information.
The human brain develops from the neural tube and contains more than a thousand million neurons.
The central cavity of our brain tube which is called ventricles is regarded as the central canal of the spinal cord.
There is cerebrospinal fluid inside these ventricles .
There are three main components of our brain, which are the cerebellum, cerebrum and brain stem.
The cerebrum is divided into left and right hemispheres.
Each hemisphere is composed of a frontal, temporal, parietal, and occipital lobes and within hemisphere it is the cortex, the white matter, and the basal nuclei.
The cerebral cortex (which is also called the gray matter) is the outside of the cerebrum.
It could provide us with conscious thought functions.
The grooves and folds can help to increase the cerebrum’s surface area, which will allow us to have a huge amount of gray matter inside of our skull.
Deep to the gray matter is the "white matter".
The white matter provides communication as a bridge between the lower central nervous system centers and the cortex.
The diencephalon contains the hypothalamus , epithalamus and thalamus.
The location of the cerebellum is near the base of the head, which creates automatic programs so without thinking we can do complex movements.
The brain stem connects the brain with the spinal cord. The mesencephalon which is is the medulla oblongata contains the midbrain, pons and cerebellum. They are together called the brainstem.
The brain stem can provide automatic functions which are very necessary for our human survival.
