Lecture 1: Introduction to Brain and Behaviors
Course Information:
Pay attention to the normal brain function and the diseased brain function
segments.

Overall Look of the Nervous System
The nervous system is divided into two major parts
oCentral Nervous System: made with of the brain and the spinal cord.
oPeripheral Nervous System: made up of all the other nerves (the nerves
throughout your body)
Organization of the nervous system
oThere is no dividing line between the brain and the spinal cord. The spinal
cord goes into the frame magma and into the brain. The only way to tell is the
gradual change in the cell types.
oWhen the brain is being seen, you usually see the cerebral cortex and the
cerebellum
oThe human brain is somewhat identical to the brain of a rat, dog or higher
animals in terms of overall organization
oAt the back of the brain there is the spinal cord. As you more forward you can
break the brain into forebrain, midbrain and hindbrain.
Hindbrain: is known as the brain stem. Major components of the
hindbrain are the cerebellum and the medulla. The cerebellum is
generally involved in sensory-motor integration (this means that it
puts together sensory input and motor output). It allows you to stand
up with two legs, gives you balance, gives you the ability to maneuver,
keeps you from falling backwards or forwards. When the cerebellum is
damaged you would look like someone who is drunk. The medulla is
responsible for basic life processes, such as heart rate, respiration so it
keeps you alive. Responsible for the most basic functions of the body.
Not the place to have a stroke or a tumor.
Midbrain: Major structure is the reticular formation (composed of
number of different nuclei). The reticular formation is responsible in
the sleep wakefulness cycles. It wakes us up and puts us back to sleep.
If there is damage, and you dont wake up it is called a coma.
Forebrain: The most interior portion of the brain. The human brain by
mass is mostly forebrain. The thalamus (the big central portion).
Underneath the thalamus is the hypothalamus. The thalamus is a

OneClass has been such a huge help in my studies at UofT especially since I am a transfer student. OneClass is the study buddy I never had before and definitely gives me the extra push to get from a B to an A!

Balancing social life With academics can be difficult, that is why I'm so glad that OneClass is out there where I can find the top notes for all of my classes. Now I can be the all-star student I want to be.

As a college student living on a college budget, I love how easy it is to earn gift cards just by submitting my notes.
