BRAIN STRUCTURES. HINDBRAIN Cerebellum – coordinates movement, balance, organizes sensory information that guides movement medulla – circulates blood,
Our Brains Control Our Thinking, Feeling, and Behavior.
Consists of the brain stem pathway for all nerves entering and leaving the brain The Pons-- involved with sleep and alertness; connects brain.
THE BRAIN AND BEHAVIOR. THE HINDBRAIN Medulla attaches to spinal cord; circulation, breathing, reflexes, muscle tone Pons, “bridge”, connects brainstem.
The Nervous System And Brain Organization. Central Nervous System Consists of the brain and spinal cord The brain is the central “computer” of the nervous.
