1. What forms the neural tube?

2. Which portion of the tube grows fastest?

3. Which portion will become the brain?

4. Which portion will become the spinal cord?

1. Neuroectodern

2. Anterior portion grows more than posterior portion

3. Anterior portion becomes brain

4. Posterior (caudal) portion becomes spinal cord

3

What are the adult brain derivatives of the telencephalon?

Cerebrum and Rhinencephalon

Name these GENERAL parts. (Hint: not the specific name, just what the structure or area is called)

1. longitudinal fissure

2. sulcus

3. gyrus

4. cerebral cortex

5. sulcus

6. gyrus

5

Name the cerebral cortex landmarks

1. suprasylvian gyrus

2. occipital gyrus

3. pseudosylvian fissure

4. sylvian gyrus

5. ectosylvian gyrus

6

Name the cerebral landmarks

1. cruciate sulcus

2. precruciate gyrus

3. postcruciate gyrus

7

Name the cerebral lobe

Parietal Lobe

8

Name the cerebral lobes

1. Frontal lobe

2. parietal lobe

3. occipital lobe

4. temporal lobe

9

What are the borders of the frontal lobe?

 

You're doing great guys!  

cruciate sulcus, postcruciate gyrus and everything rostral

10

What are the borders of the temporal lobe?

sylvian gyrus and ectosylvian gyrus

11

What are the borders of the parietal lobe?

Rostral border is postcruciate g., caudal border is straight up (dorsal) from caudal end of pseudosylvian fissure

12

Name the primary cortical areas.

Somesthetic

Auditory

Motor 

Visual

13

Which gyri and lobes are associated with the primary somesthetic area?

postcruciate gyrus (frontal lobe), rostral suprasylvian gyrus (frontal lobe), ectosylvian gyrus (temporal lobe)

14

Which gyri and lobes are associated with the primary motor area?

postcruciate gyrus (frontal lobe), rostral suprasyvlain gyrus (frontal lobe)

15

Which gyri and lobes are associated with the primary auditory area?

Ectosylvian gyrus (temporal lobe)

16

Which gyri and lobes are associated with the primary occipital area?

Occipital gyrus, occipital lobe

17

1. Which cortical lobe does not contain a primary cortical area?

2. What does this lobe contain?

1. Piriform lobe (I've also seen it spelled pyriform... not sure which is right)

2. Contains olfactory information

18

Label the parts

1. cruciate sulcus

2. ansate sulcus

3. primary somesthetic area I

4. primary visual area

5. suprasylvian sulcus (and primary auditory area - oops)

6. pseudosylvian fissure

7. primary somesthetic area II

8. primary motor area

19

Name the types of cells in gray matter.

Cell bodies

Dendrites

Axons (the part very close to the cell body)

Glia

Capillaries

*cell bodies are the primary distinguishing factor between gray matter and white matter*

20

Name the types of cells/structures in white matter?

Axons 

Glia

Capillaries

*note that there are NO neuronal cell bodies within white matter - main difference between white matter and gray matter*

21

What structure is the caudate nucleus associated with and what type of matter is it?

Caudate nucleus is part of the cerebral cortex, and is gray matter.

22

Corpus Callosum

Unibrow of the lady

Axons

Connects functional areas of R and L hemispheres

23

Internal Capsule

Cheeks of the lady

Cerebral afferents and efferents 

Carry information to and from cerebrum

24

Unipolar Nuerons

One process at the cell body

Sensory neurons

25

Bipolar Neurons

Two processes at the cell body

Sensory Neurons

26

Multipolar Neurons

Many processes at the cell body

Sensory or motor neurons

27

Label the meninges

1. Dura Mater

2. Arachnoid

3. Subarachnoid space

4. Pia Mater

28

Which two layers of meninges make up the Leptomenengies?

Arachnoid + Pia Mater

29

Define Falx cerebri

Meninges that cover the external aspect of the brain

30

Define Tantorium cerebelli

Meninges in the space separating the cerebrum from the cerebellum

31

Dorsal Sagittal Sinus

Lies within the falx cerebri.  It receives numerous arachnoid villi of the meninges and tributary veins from the cerebral hemispheres. Very important for the circulation of CSF from the 

32

Label the structures

1. Dorsal sagittal sinus

2. Arachnoid villus

3. Dura Mater

4. arachnoid

5. subarachnoid space

6. pia mater
