fast conducting and skin movements

3

hearing sensory areas are

auditory visual cortex and visual assocation area

4

prefrontal cortex associated areas anterior to motor areas

invlved in congnition and personality/mood

Cerebellum coordinates

movements, maintains posture and equilibrium

17

Input to the cerebellum

Equilibrum info, Proprioceptive info (limbs location in space) and cerebral cortex input

18

name the 3 lobes of the cerebellum

20

The prefrontal cortex executive functions are

differentiate conflicting thoughts (good/bad, better/best, etc.), outcome prediction, working towards a goal/task and personality
