Hypothalamus controls and integrates the autonomic

This preview shows page 2 - 4 out of 6 pages.

Hypothalamus Controls and integrates the autonomic nervous system; regulates hormones, emotional behavior, temperature, eating, and drinking behavior 5. Cerebral cortex Interprets sensory input, controls skilled skeletal muscle movements, and is involved in emotional and intellectual processes 6. Pons Helps control breathing; conducts impulses to and from the cerebellum, midbrain, and medulla 7. Thalamus Relays all sensory input to the cerebral cortex; involved in skeletal muscle actions and memory processing 8. Corpora quadrigemina of the brain Coordinates visual and auditory reflexes 9. Basal nuclei Coordinates gross, automatic muscle movements; also involved with the limbic system 10. Corpus callosum White fiber tracts communicating between hemispheres
C. Flow of Cerebrospinal Fluid Fill in the numbered blanks with the name of the structure that corresponds with the number in the following paragraph. Fluid for the CSF is derived from the bloodstream. The sites of CSF formation are the (1) choroid plexus , special tiny capillaries located in the walls of (2) lateral ventricles , (3) third ventricle , and (4) fourth ventricle . Cells that line the ventricles have cilia that move the CSF and are called (5) ependymal cells . The two lateral ventricles are separated by a thin membrane called the (6) septum pellucidum . CSF flows by cilia movement from the two lateral ventricles through the interventricular foramen to the (7) third ventricle . From here, the CSF flows through the (8) cerebral aqueduct into the fourth ventricle. The CSF leaves the fourth ventricle through three openings: the median aperture and two lateral apertures. CSF is now located in the (9) subarachnoid
