HUMAN BRAIN
Brain is organ of soft nervous tissue
contained in the skull of vertebrates,
functioning as the coordinating centre of the
body
PARTS OF BRAIN

Human Brain is divided into 3 main parts
on the basis of their function and
placements
The 3 main parts of Human Brain are ;
1.
Fore Brain
2.
Mid Brain
3.
Hind Brain
FORE BRAIN
Position: It is the anterior part of the brain
 It
has 3 parts
1.
Cerebrum
2.
Thalamus
3.
Limbic System
THALAMUS
Position: It is located
above the brain stem and
between the cerebral
cortex and mid-brain
Function: It carries
sensory information from
the body to Cerebrum
and The Limbic System
HYPOTHALAMUS & PITUITARY
GLAND
PITUITARY
GLAND
HYPOTHALAMUS
Position: It lies under the
thalamus
Function: It connects the
nervous system with the
endocrine system via pituitary
gland
Structure: It is pea-shaped
structure
Function: It is very important
in Growth and reproduction
LIMBIC SYSTEM
Structure: It is arc shaped
structure between thalamus and
cerebrum
Function: It controls responses like





Hunger
Fear
Thirst
Anger
Sexual responses etc
CEREBRUM
Structure:
It
is divided into 2 halves called cerebral
hemisphere
They
communicate
via corpus collosum
Cerebral
cortex is
the outer region
of Cerebrum
FUNCTION OF CEREBRUM

It helps In movement

It controls speech

It is responsible for sensory processing

It determines the intelligence of the being
MID-BRAIN
Position: It is
located below the
cerebral cortex and
above the hind brain
Function: It controls
reflex movements of
the body and hearing
reflexes
HIND-BRAIN
Position: It is present at the
backside of the Brain
Parts: It consists of
1.
Cerebellum
2.
Pons
3.
Medulla Oblongata
CEREBELLUM
Meaning: It is latin for
Little Brain
Position: It is located at
the back side of head
Functions: It controls the
balance of the body and
co-ordinates the
voluntary movement of
the body
PONS
Meaning: Pons mean
“Bridge”
Position: It islocated
above medulla
Function: It controls
sleep as well as the rate
and pattern of breathing
MEDULLA OBLONGATA
Position: It is the
posterior part of the brain
Function: Itcontrols
automatic actions e.g
1.
Breathing
2.
Heart rate
3.
