Presentation on theme: "The Brain Enduring Understanding: The brain is the control center of the body. The numerous sections of the brain carry out specific tasks that function."— Presentation transcript:
2 Essential Questions: What are the major parts of the brain? SC.912.L : Identify the major parts of the brain on diagrams or models.
3 BellworkExamine the diagrams below. Do you think this is a survivable injury? Why or why not? Please explain.Image:
4 External Features of the Brain StructureFunctionCerebral hemispheresLargest part of the brainleft and right hemisphereslanguage, learning, memory, voluntary body movementsCerebellum“little brain”lower back of brainbalance and coordinationBrainstemat base of brain connects spinal cordmade up of the pons and medulla oblongataRelays signals between the brain and spinal cord
5 External Features of the Brain CerebrumBrain stemCerebellum
6 The Brain Stem Brain Stem Region Structure Function Brain stem Pons Top of brain stemControls breathing rateMedulla OblongataBeneath the ponsConnects spinal cordControls blood pressure, heart rate, breathing rateBrain stem
7 What does the light blue shaded organ refer to in the below diagram? CerebrumMedulla oblongataPonsSpinal cordCerebellum
8 What does the green shaded organ refer to in the below diagram? CerebrumMedulla oblongataPonsSpinal cordCerebellum
14 Brain Cap Activity: Step 1 Mark the lobes we discussed on your cap with a permanent marker. Be sure to include the cerebellum.Activity modified from explorebiology.com
15 Brain Cap Activity: Step 2 Map the functional areas as seen in the diagram below with different colored permanent markers. The brain is both anatomically and functionally segregated. Different function are located in particular regions of each lobe.
16 Brain Cap Activity: Step 3 Wear and share!Extra credit for students who teach their parent or friend about the brain and then me a picture of them wearing your cap!
