Neuroanatomy review
-bigger gap between the hemispheres at the back of the brain, less space between the back of
the brain and the skull
-dorsal, lateral, medial, axial (horizontal), sagittal, coronal (frontal section),
-must draw a picture for the first examination.
-afferent: to the brain
-efferent: from the brain
Meninges: dura, arachnoid, pia matter, CSF
Meningitis (west nile virus)
Encephalitis is an infection in the actual brain
Gyri: the folds of the brains
Sulci: the valleys in the brain
Central sulcus seperates parietal from frontal lobes
-only sulcus that goes all the way lateral from the hemispheric space
Post central gyrus: closer to the back of the brain (somatosensory cortex) and;
precentral gyrus: closer to the front (primary motor cortex resides)
postcentral and precentral sulcus
lateral sulcus (temporal to frontal lobes)
Superior, inferior, middle frontal and inferior frontal gyrus
Frontal Pole
Temporal lobe Sulci/Gyri
“ “
Parietal Lobe Sulci/Gyri
Supermarginal Gyrus
“ “
Cytoarchitectonic (Brodmann) Maps
Primary Cortices vs. Secondary Association Cortices
Major Ateries
Anterior: feeds the top and ront of brain
Middle: Middle

Posterior: ventral and posterior part of the brain
If you had a stroke, dependent on where is occurred, you will have different symptoms.
Gyri: nuclei and dendrites (grey) axons (white matters)
Ventricals: removed unwanted metabolites,
Right and left lateral ventricles
3rd ventrical (ventral midline to others
Midline that connects to the 4th ventrical, being most ventral
CSF
-created within the ventrals by ependymal cells
-provides nutrients
-spial tas tells the utriets ad etaolites i oe’s ervous syste
-just the olour of the CSF a tell if there’s proles
Subcortical structures
-cortex
-corpus collosum: 4 parts
genu of CC is near the front of the brain
Forebrain and the brainstem
Forebrain: cerebral cortex, basal ganglia and limbic system
Cerebral cortex: 6 layers of grey matter, each has a different role (1.54mm thick)
-responsible for higher order processing
Neocortex vs. limbic cortex
Basal Ganglia: nuclei deep within the white matter
-small and grouped together with respect to function
-Straitum: caudate + putamen + nucleous accumbers
Putamen: lots of space anterior to posterior
