The Nervous System Create a job advertisement for a maintenance man for the nervous system. The ad must include each of the nervous systems and their function. Further, you want to describe what the maintenance man will be responsible for, including how to keep each system running effectively and what could possibly happen if the maintenance man does not do his job.
Forebrain Create a 4 verse song, including a chorus. Each verse must address each of the 4 structures in the forebrain, function of each structure and location relative to other structures in the brain. The chorus should include the overall functions of the entire forebrain. You can choose any melody you want. You will receive 3 extra points if you use the music and record the song.
Midbrain Create a magical potion that includes each of the structures of the midbrain. You should describe how to obtain the structures (ex: go into the midbrain and lateral to the thalamus extract the …). You should also describe what each structure will add to the magical powers of the potion. Further, you want to discuss what could happen if someone drinks the magical potion made from diseased or disordered midbrain structures.
Hindbrain Using common household items, create a model of the hindbrain. You also need to include a written description of each structure and its function.
The Cerebral Cortex Create a hat that has all 4 lobes (technically 8, since there are 4 on each side). Be sure to not only label each lobe but also describe its function (right on the hat!!!)
The Ventricular System Create a water ride that you might find at an amusement park. You need to draw the ride and give a written description of how you would travel on the ride, including how the water is replenished.
