Where is Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) circulate?
lateral ventricles: line each hemisphere
3rd, 4th ventricle: in brain sterm
What cells make CSF
Neuroglia cells called ependymal cells
what is choroid plexus ?
Ependymal cells associated BV that produce CSF
What is the funtion of CSF?
protects brain from movement of the skull + vertebral column -> brain floats
buoyancy -> weight brain is reduced
What is hydrocephalus?
Result from blockage of CSF through CNS (cerebral aqueduct)
When hydrocephalus occur ?
What are regions of the brain?
What is Brain Stem?
Connect the spinal cord and cerebellum
What is structure of brain sterm
Anterior part: contain descending tracts involved with motor control
Posterior: contain ascending tracts from the spinal cord, cerebellum and craial nerve
what are funtions of Brain stem
Control of hear rate, blood pressure, breathing
Part of the brain stem
Smallest region of brain stem
Composed of tracts of nerve fibers
what is corpora quadrigemina
the largest midbrain nuclei
What are 2 superior colliculus?
What are 2 inferior colliculus?
Midbrain contain pain perception
Receptors respond to opiates (thuoc phien)
Part of the brain stem
part of brain stem
What are funtions of Medualla Oblongata
What is Reticular Formation?
Funtion of Reticular Formation
Part of the brain stem
(little brain) smaller version of cerebrum
What part cerebellum attach to brain stem
What is Cerebellar peduncle
Gray matter of cerebellum
consists of outer cortex and nuclei deep within the cerebellum
White matter of cerebellum
consists of tracts collectively called arbor vitae
Parts of Cerebellum
Flocculonodular lobe, vermis, lateral he,ispheres
• a small inferior part
• Help control balance and coordination
• Alcohol depresses cerebellum so, drinking driver test walking with imbalance
two large hemispheres
Funtion of lateral hemisphere
concert with the frontal lobes of
Part of brain stem
Location: between brain stem and cerebrum
Main components: the thalamus, epithalamus, and hypothalamus
what is Thalamus
What is Interthamaic adhesion of thalamus ?
a small stalk in the center connecting two
What does Sensory area do?
Ascending axons carrying sensory information project to the thalamus
How does Sensory area work?
they synapse with thalamic neurons -> thalamic neurons send their axons to the cerebral cortex -> most awareness of sensory input occurs.
(audiotory, visual,, pain, touch pass through thalamus)
What is Epithlamus ?
Small area, superior and posterior to the thalamus
What does Epithalamus consit ?
habenular nuclei and pineal body
What is habenular nuclei
influenced by the sense of smell
involved in emotional
visceral responses to odors. (mui hoi)
What is pineal body
Influence the sleep-wake cycle
What is Hypothalamus
The most inferior part of the diencephalon •
A collection of nuclei: connect to many other parts of the brain and spinal cord
Involved with autonomic, endocrine, emotional (limbic system)
Autonomic nervous system (ANS)
helpingcontrol heart rate, blood vessel diameter, urine release from the urinary bladder, and the movement of food through the digestive tract.
HT is a part of the limbic system and affects mood, motivation, and emotions.
Feeling relaxed, sexual pleasure, rage, and fear are related to HT
What is Mammillary body?
involved in emotional response to order, olfactory
Logitudinal fissure: divide into left and right hemispheres
voluntary motor function, motivation, aggression, the sense of smell, and mood.
the reception and evaluation of most sensory information, such as touch, pain, temperature, balance, and taste.
• The frontal and parietal lobes are
reception and integration of visual input.
Receive and evaluate input for smell and hearing.
the gray matter on the outer surface of the cerebrum
clusters of gray matter deep inside the brain
white matter of the brain between the cortex and nuclei
Consist of tracts that connect areas of the cerebral cortex to each other or to other parts of the CNS
Parts of Cerebral medulla
Association fibers, Commissural fibers, Projection fibers
connect areas of the cerebral cortex within the same hemisphere
connect one cerebral hemisphere to the other.
between the cerebrum and other parts of the brain and spinal cord
Sensory area of the Cerebral Cortex
Sensory pathways project to specific regions of the cerebral cortex,
primary sensory areas.
Visual cortex: processing visual images in the occipital lobe
auditory cortex: processing auditory stimuli in the temporal lobe
Taste area: perceive in the parietal lobe
Olfactory cortex: conscious and unconscious responses to odor on the inferior surface of the temporal lobe
Motor area of Cerebral Cortex
primary motor cortex and premotor area
primary motor cortex
controlling motor functions of the feet are in the most superior.
controlling the face are in the inferior region
the staging area in which motor functions are organized before they are initiated in the motor cortex
5) Basal Nuclei
A group of functionally related nuclei located in the inferior cerebrum, diencephalon, and midbrain
Control of motor funtion
is located in the diencephalon.
is located in the midbrain
6) LImbic system
Parts of the cerebrum and diencephalon are grouped together
Funtion of Limbic system
memory, reproduction, and nutrition
