CEREBRAL PEDUNCLE-contain substantia nigra,motor center that relays inhibitory signals preventn unwanted movemnts. Degeneration of neurons of substantia nigra leads to m. tremor of Parkinsons
SUPERIOR COLLICULUS-mediate visual attention, visually tracking moving objects
INFERIOR COLLICULUS-they mediate the reflexive turning of the head in response to a sound
-they are on the dorsum or "roof" & hence region is called tectum or tectal plate
-reflex centers (vision, hearing)

Efferent pathways carry signals away from CNS . They signal that your brain sends something like blinking.
Afferent signals come from outside stimuli & tell your brain what they're sensing such as temp. Afferent bring stimuli to brain, where signal is integrated & processed. The brain then coordinates a response via efferent signals back to rest of body.

are paired nuclei which along with the globus pallidus and putamen are referred to as the corpus striatum, and collectively make up the basal ganglia. The caudate nuclei have both motor and behavioural functions, in particular maintaining body and limb posture, as well as controlling approach-attachment behaviours
The caudate nucleus is located lateral to the lateral ventricles
It is produced in the choroid plexuses of the ventricles of the brain, and absorbed in the arachnoid granulations. There is about 125mL of CSF at any one time, and about 500mL is generated every day.
CSF occupies the subarachnoid space (between the arachnoid mater and the pia mater) and the ventricular system around and inside the brain and spinal cord. It fills the ventricles of the brain, cisterns, and sulci, as well as the central canalof the spinal cord. There is also a connection from the subarachnoid space to the bony labyrinth of the inner ear via the perilymphatic duct where the perilymph is continuous with the cerebrospinal fluid.
The majority of CSF is produced from within the two lateral ventricles. From here, CSF passes through the interventricular foramina to the third ventricle, then the cerebral aqueduct to the fourth ventricle. From the fourth ventricle, the fluid passes into the subarachnoid space through four openings – the central canal of the spinal cord, the median aperture, and the two lateral apertures. CSF is present within the subarachnoid space, which covers the brain, spinal cord, and stretches below the end of the spinal cord to the sacrum. 
CSF moves in a single outward direction from the ventricles, but multidirectionally in the subarachnoid space.
CSF is derived from blood plasma and is largely similar to it, except that CSF is nearly protein-free compared with plasma and has some different electrolyte levels. Due to the way it is produced, CSF has a higher chloride level than plasma, and an equivalent sodium level
the hemispheres are linked by the corpus callosum, a very large bundle of nerve fibers. Smaller commissures, including the anterior commissure, the posterior commissureand the fornix, also join the hemispheres and these are also present in other vertebrates. These commissures transfer information between the two hemispheres to coordinate localized functions.
