Brain Structures and Functions Worksheet
Provide a brief description for each of the following functions: 1. Basal ganglia
Located on the outside of the Thalamus. Process sensory information.
Located under the cingulate gyrus. Assist in language learning.
Located on each side of the head above the temples, and manages hearing and speech.
Located in the back of the head, and manages vision.
Located in the front of the head. Manages voluntary movement, thinking, and feeling.
Cerebrum The cerebrum is the largest part of the brain. Perception, thought, imagination, judgement, and decision are in this part of the brain. 7. Spinal cord
The mid dorsal line of the body. This has spinal nerves that leave the cord. Provide means of communication between the brain and spinal nerves. Also provides reflex actions. 8. Cerebellum Bundle of nerves that control language learning.
Located at the top of the spinal cord. Controls breathing, heart rate, and blood pressure.
Above the medulla, and controls sensory information. It also controls facial exspretions.
Located within the temporal lobe. Controls learning, and memory.
Located in front of the Hippopotamus. Responsible for anxiety, emotion, and fear.
Located beneath the Thalamus. Holds biological, drives, hormonal levels, sexual behavior.
Located below the Thalamus, Assist in creating hunger, thirst, and body temp.
In the middle of the limbic system. Relays incoming information, but does not relay smell.
