					Interesting facts about our head
                  What is there in our minds. Truly a brain - a cluster of puzzles for the
                  person as well as a selection of interesting tools and mechanisms by
                  which we make all sensible and not very action in their lives. In this article
                  we have tried to tell the most interesting things that we have in mind.
                  The cerebral cortex is composed of two hemispheres connected by a
bundle of nerve fibers. This beam is called the corpus callosum (corpus callosum). It
consists of 200-250 million nerve fibers and is the largest structure connecting the
hemisphere. In the corpus callosum is a beak and knee.
Fence - is the core of the brain in the form of a narrow strip of gray matter. The fence is
associated with olfactory bulb. Neurons respond well to fences physical, auditory and
visual stimuli.
Gray tuber (tuber cinereum) - a department of the hypothalamus is responsible for
autonomic functions (such as metabolism and thermotaxis). Because there is a hillock,
there is the hypothalamus, and nadbugore and zabugore.
The cerebellum (cerebellum) have representatives of all classes of vertebrates. Even the
cephalopods (such as octopus have) a similar brain education. The cerebellum is
responsible for coordination, balance and regulation of muscle tone. Vermis - is its middle
section.
After legs cerebellum cerebellum communicates with other parts of the central nervous
system.
The cavity of the midbrain called the plumbing .
Pallidus (globus pallidus s. pallidum) - is the structure of the forebrain in higher
vertebrates. Irritation of the globus pallidus with implanted electrodes causes the muscles
of the limbs and the activation or braking ¬ tion of some spinal motoneurons.
The head of the caudate nucleus is adjacent to the front at the bottom perforated
substance. This is where it connects to the lenticular nucleus.
Frenulum of the upper brain sails (frenulum veli medullaris superioris), according to the
dictionary - is a fibrous cord that connects the superior medullary velum with the roof of the
midbrain. Frankly, I do not understand from this phrase word.
The hippocampus (from Hippocampos - Seahorse) - is part of the olfactory cortex. He
participates in the formation of emotions and the transition to long-term memory. He ends
bulges separated by small grooves on some bumps, called toes seahorse (digitationes
hippocampi).
