BC: Besides the fact that without these structures you wouldn't be able to do half the things you do, they have a lot to do with psychology.They all make you think and have understanding of material. There are new studies done on these functions to understand the true meaning of what they do and how they are all connected. There is always something new to learn about with your brain.
FC: The Functions of the Brain Shannon Candelaria, Jennifer Lundy
1: Hypothalamus | The hypothalamus controls your behavioral functions such as hunger, thirst and body temperature.
2: Thalamus | Ever wonder what makes your body move? The thalamus is in control of your timing, attention and movements. It is a key factor in your alertness and awareness.
3: Cerebellum | The cerebellum is the reason why you do things over and over again. It controls your motor behaviors.
4: Medulla Oblongata | This part of your brain controls your blood pressure, breathing and swallowing.
5: P o N S | This important region controls posture, motor behaviors and balance. Without this region we would all be walking around looking like SpongeBob.
6: Hippocampus | This structure of your brain controls your memory formation. So thanks to this function we are able to play the memory card game.
7: Amygdala | The amygdala is in control of all your fears and emotions. It's the reason we cry and get scared.
8: This structure is the reason we are able to talk and write. It controls language and understanding. | Broca's Area
9: Visual Cortex | This region is the reason we are able to see. We get our vision not only from eating carrots but from our visual cortex as well.
