1 of 5
Cerebellum
Controls all voluntary movements (e.g. Walking, Cycling, Chewing, Balence and Muscle tone. Walking requires the co-ordination of 27 muscles
2 of 5
Medulla
Part of the brain stem- and manages the heart rate, blood pressure and all other processes which are vital to life.
3 of 5
Pituitary Gland
Master gland which secretes FSH and affects growth and release of hormones from the ovaries
4 of 5
Hypothalamus
Involved in Homeostasis like maintaining body temperature and fluid balence. It can affect the Pituitary Gland
