- nuclei that help control respiration
- nuclei and tracts linking the cerebellum with the brain stem, cerebrum and spinal
cord
- ascending, descending and transverse tracts
- subconscious somatic and visceral motor centres
Purpose of the misencephalon?
(midbrain)
- process visual and auditory info
- generation of reflexive somatic motor responses to these stimuli
- works with cerebrum and cerebellum to control subconscious motor movement
- maintains consciousness

2) Parietal
