Flashcards in Brain Demonstration Deck (4):
Describe the Sulci?
- Sulci in same place in all brains
- Central Sulcus = separates frontal from parietal
- Parieto-Occipital Sulcus = separates parietal from occipital
- Lateral Sulcus = separates temporal from other lobes
What can you seen in the Inferior Surface of the brain?
- Optic Chiasm lies at the base of the Diencephalon
- Infundibulum (pituitary stalk) = next to the optic chiasm
Function and Location of the Ventricular system?
- Posterior Horn of Lateral Ventricles --> Occipital Lobe
- Cortex = Largest part of the brain
- Outside of Lateral Ventricles = Basal Ganglia
Function = Mechanical Protective Role
CSF - removes waste substances from brain surface and delivers products (hormones) to regions of the brain.
