4 Glial Cells/Functions

Schwann - PNS myelin/1 axon
Oligodendrocytes - CNS myelin/multiple axons
Astrocytes - nutrtion/BBB
Microglia - macs/cleanup
Ependymal Cells - columnar, ciliated cells lining ventricles

2

Test for Astrocytoma

GFAP

3

White vs. Gray Matter (contents and locations)

Myelinated axonal tracts vs. cell bodies/nuclei
Gray central in spinal cord but flipped in cerebellum

4

3 Layers of Cerebellar Cortex (outside-in)

Molecular layer
Purkinje cell layer
Granule cell layer

5

3 Regions of Spinal Cord Central Gray Matter

Ventral: motor
Lateral: autonomic
Dorsal: sensory

6

Diencephalon 3 Contents (rostral->caudal)

Hypothalamus
Thalamus
Epithalamus-pineal gland

7

Brainstem 3 Contents (rostral->caudal)

Midbrain
Pons
Medulla

8

Pre and Postcentral Gyri

Flank the central sulcus rostrally-> caudally, repsonsible for primary motor and somatosensory, respectively

9

Superior Temporal Gyrus

Just below the lateral fissure, primary auditory input

10

T1 vs. T2 MRI Views

Highlight tissue vs. fluid
