Unformatted text preview: fish, such as the salmon, have large optic lobes because they use sight to find food, 4) The midbrain is most important in amphibians, 5) Birds have a brain that starts smaller and gradually increases in size towards the back, 6) the combination of sight and locomotion play a large role in the life of birds, and 7) The cerebral cortex in humans is most developed of all animals and aids us in the ability to learn, reason and memory. In this lab, I expect to observe the various brains, especially that of a sheep and shark. I also expect to observe the eye ball of a cow and understand how it works with the brain to provide sight. I will also perform experiments to test the visual motor skills in humans.
