This preview shows pages 1-3. to view the full 11 pages of the document.
Basic organization of the brain
How is it basically structured
o Spinal cord forebrain
Structure of the human brain
o Lobes of the cerebral cortex
Vast majority of human brain
Stroke in brain stem dead
Stroke in cerebral cortex diagnosable
Function and organization of cerebral hemispheres
Blood supply of the brain
o Strokes
o Tumors
Cerebral cortex
Gyrencelphalic vs Lissenphalic
o With gyri and sulci
Human brain

Only pages 1-3 are available for preview. Some parts have been intentionally blurred.

o Gyri mountains
o Sulci fissures
o Smooth
Rat brain
Cerebral hemispheres
Human brains separated into left and right hemispheres
o Mirror images
o Not exactly alike slight differences
Right brain (hemisphere)
o Controls and receives information from left side of the body
Left brain (hemisphere
o Controls and receives information from right side of the body
Corresponding on the opposite side of the body
Corpus callosum connects the two hemispheres
Three main sulci
o Longitudinal fissure divides the two hemispheres
AKA longitudinal sulcus
o Central sulcus
AKA central fissure
Divides brain from front to back
Separates frontal and parietal lobes
o Sylvian fissure
AKA lateral fissure
Separates frontal lobe and temporal lobes

Only pages 1-3 are available for preview. Some parts have been intentionally blurred.

Corpus Callosum
Cerebral lobes
Four lobes on each hemisphere (technically)
Fore lobes in general
o Frontal lobe
o Parietal lobe
o Temporal lobe
o Occipital lobe
Each lobe has one major primary function
Each lobe has two different types of cortex
o Primary
Responsible for performing basic input / output function
Area that is responsible the primary function of the specific lobe
o Associational
Higher order function
Compared to primary basic functions
More recently evolved
Humans more association cortex
Brodmann’s map of the brain
Numbered areas of the brain
