Brain study guide 1. Identify the layers of brain protection - bone and meninges. Identify dura matter folds 2. Cerebrospinal fluid – origin, location and functions External view 1. Identify the parts of the brain: cerebrum, cerebellum. Brain stem, diencephalons ( can it be seen from the outside? ) 2. Cerebrum Identify 5 lobes – can they all be seen from the outside? Identify main sulci, fissures and gyri Identify main functional area of the cerebrum 3. Brain stem Identify the 3 parts of the brain stem: Mid brain (mesencephalon), pos, medulla oblongata 4. Diencephalon Identify external structure tat are associated with the diencephalons: pituitary gland and infundibulum, mammillary bodies Internal view 1. Open the brain to midsagittal plan and identify the following: - Ventricles and - choroids plexus 2. Cerebrum structures and areas: - cerebral cortex (gray matter – what is it made of ?), white
