Introduction to Brain Structure Warm Up Question 1. Name the four lobes: 2. Now pair them with their function! a. . sensation, math skills b. . decision making, planning c. . hearing d. . vision Brain Notes: Gray consists of tightly packed neuron cell bodies, beneath that lies the matter, which is white because axons are covered with myelin. The cerebellum deals with coordination, , and skilled motor activity (like playing a sport). Breathing, heart rate, sleep and wakefulness are all governed by our Our stem. ganglia direct and program our movement (motor activity). Deep in the brain, the is an important relay center for sensory information. The hypothalamus is the hormone center of the brain that regulates several aspects of in our bodies.
