Dorsal horn/ ventral horn: made up of grey matter Generally carry sensory information Columns: white matter Generally carry s___________ information What division of PNS controls non emergency functions? Parasympathetic What do superior coliculi do? Eye movement Inferior coliculi? Auditory What is the only sense not routed through the thalumus to the cortex? Olfactory What is the sulcus dividing frontal lobe from parietal? Central sulcus What is division between 2 hemispheres? Sagital fissure What is division between temporal and parietal? Lateral sulcus What is division between parietal and occipital? Parietal/occipital sulcus What are 5 lobes? Frontal, parietal, occipital, temporal, ____________ Where is primary motor cortex located? _______________ What area of brain has 15x more dendritic spines than occipital cortex?
