Cells (Neuroglia): Schwann and oligodendrocytes  form protective myelin sheaths Astrocytes form part of the  blood brain barrier Ependymal cells help produce  cerbrospinal fluid Satellite cells help supply  nutrients to neurons and help  them maintain their electrical  potential Microglia ingest and digest  microorganisms and waste  products from injured neurons. Parts of brain:   Skull Dura mater Arachnoid mater Pia mater Cerebrum Thalamus  Hypothalamus Midbrain Brainstem Pons Medulla Oblongata Brain structures:   Cerebrum: Also known as cerebral cortex Controls ability to think and  reason Enclosed by three meninges  (dura mater, arachnoid mater,  and pia mater) Consists of frontal (motor  control), temporal (hearing),  pareital (senosory), and occipital  (visual) Pons superior to medulla  oblongata superior to pons
