  • Diencephalon
  • Pons
  • Medulla Oblongata
  • Midbrain
  • 2
    The _______ assists in the coordinated patterns of breathing, eye movement, and facial expressions, also contributes to REM (Rapid Eye Movement).
  • Medulla Oblongata
  • Pons
  • Diencephalon
  • Midbrain
  • 3
    The _________ fibers handle impulses to lower motor neurons, and helps regulate heartbeat, blood pressure, breathing, as well as reflex actions.
  • Pons
  • Diencephalon
  • Midbrain
  • Medulla Oblongata
  • 4
    The __________ contains the Thalamus, Hypothalamus, and Pineal Body which perform various functions.
  • Medulla Oblongata
  • Diencephalon
  • Midbrain
  • Pons
  • 5
    The __________ is a relay station from the sense organs to the cerebrum for all sensory input except smell. It is associated with pain, temperature, crude touch, and unpleasant feelings.
  • Thalamus
  • Hypothalamus
  • Pineal Body
  • 6
    The _________ regulates and coordinates functions such as heart rate, blood pressure, peristalic actions, appetite & satiety, pleasure, temperature, and general coordination of the ANS functions.
  • Pineal Body
  • Hypothalamus
  • Thalamus
  • 7
    The __________, containing melatonin, functions as an internal biological clock that regulates daily activities as well as yearly rhythms.
  • Pineal Body
  • Thalamus
  • Hypothalamus
  • 8
    The Reticular Activating System (RAS)....
  • Maintains posture & balance, coordinates normal movements to complex activities
  • Maintains arousal levels in the cerebral cortex and alerts it to changes in homeostasis
  • Responds to movement, responsible for our position in gravity, helps with equillibrium
  • 9
    The Cerebellum.....
  • Maintains posture & balance, coordinates normal movements to complex activities
  • Maintains arousal levels in the cerebral cortex and alerts it to changes in homeostasis
  • Responds to movement, responsible for our position in gravity, helps with equillibrium
  • 10
    The Vestibular Apparatus....
  • Maintains posture & balance, coordinates normal movements to complex activities
  • Maintains arousal levels in the cerebral cortex and alerts it to changes in homeostasis
  • Responds to movement, responsible for our position in gravity, helps with equillibrium
  • 11
    ___________ are four fluid-filled chambers found within the brain, and contain Cerebralspinal Fluid (CSF) which helps maintain homeostasis.
  • Vessels
  • Meninges
  • Ventricles
  • 12
    Put the following three Meninges (Maters) in order with their descriptions. (i.e. Mater, its description, Mater, its description...)
    • Lines cranial bones, covers brain & spinal cord
    • Arachnoid Mater
    • Dura Mater
    • Pia Mater
    • Thin, Adheres directly to brain and spinal cord
    • A Cobweb-like membrane containing many blood vessels
