  • Brain regions and function
    • Brainstem
      • Midbrain, medulla, pons
      • Site of entry for sensory information
      • Mediate arousal
      • Vital role in autonomic functions
    • Cerebellum
      • Input on motor tasks to be performed
      • Progress of current motor tasks
      • LEARNING of motor skills
    • Basal Forebrain
      • SMOOTH execution of motor tasks
    • Motor Cortex
      • Responsible for voluntary actions
    • Heavily Wrinkled outer layer: 4 lobes
      • FRONTAL LOBE
        • Prefrontal cortex
          • Plans future action
        • Motor cortex
          • Controls actions
      • PARIETAL LOBE
        • Somatic sensation
      • OCCIPITAL LOBE
        • Vision
      • TEMPORAL LOBE
        • Hearing
        • Also contains deeper structures
          • Hippocampus
            • Learning and memory
          • Amygdala
            • emotion
          • Basal ganglia
            • Regulates motor performance
