PSY 340

University of Phoenix Material
Brain Structures as well as Functions Worksheet
Two columns are given below: Brain Structure along with Function(s). Items in the column, “Brain Structure” will explain an area of the brain, whereas items in the column titled “Function(s)” will explain skill, the general behavior, and/or activity of the related brain construction. Fill in the blank for each statement below, either by listing the brain construction responsible for the function explained, or by providing the common function (skill, behavior, and/or activity) of the related brain construction. Brain Structure Meninges Function(s) The three films within the skull that encloses and defends your brain. The meninges are made of the "Pia Mater", the "Arachnoid", and the "Dura Mater".

Defensive bone surrounding the central nervous CNS – Skull and Spinal system. Cord Concave areas in the brain crammed with cerebral Ventricles spinal fluid (CSF). The visual dealing out hub of the mammalian brain Occipital Lobe containing nearly the entire anatomical visual cortex area. The lobe involved in orderliness, inhibition, as well Frontal Lobe as planning control. Temporal Lobe The lobe involved in reminiscence, hearing, as well as language understanding. This lobe works to combine sensory information to different parts of the body, for object manipulation, calculations, as well as for visuospatial processing. A “system” (also identified as the piriform lobe or 5th lobe) engaged in intricate sentiment conducts. It controls diffusions of neural inputs between the brain and the outside edge. They let the way of information commencing the optic nerves.

Medulla Anterior Hypothalamus and Posterior Hypothalamus Engages exchanges between the Cortex and Accountable for sustaining crucial body functions. Controls essential functions such as blood Medulla Oblongata pressure. It connects the nervous system with the endocrine system through the pituitary gland. for instance heart rate and inhalation. Involved in imaginings and sleep. Whilst you inhale air molecules connect to the olfactory Olfactory nerve (Cranial mucosa and inspire the olfactory sensors of Nerve I) cranial nerve I as well as electrical activity is transuded to olfactory bulb. Involved in damaged by Alzheimer’s disease. It adds information from the two dissimilar halves of the cerebral cortex. short term memory. and heart rate. Treats sensory information and transmits it to the cerebellum where it is treated more. and posture. .PSY 340 Cerebral Arteries Corpus Callosum Cranial Nerves Hippocampus Thalamus Supplies the brain with nourishment (food) and oxygen. Olfactory bulb cells convey electrical action to other components of the central nervous system through the olfactory region. The specific olfactory receptor neurons related to the olfactory nerve are situated in the olfactory mucosa of the nasal hollow space. These 12 formations send and receive motor and sensory signs between the brain and body. “System” separated into two major parts: the Autonomic System autonomic nervous system and somatic nervous system. Latin for “little brain” this arrangement is involved Cerebellum in movement.
