Explanation of Solution

Gray matter - h. cell bodies and dendrites

Gray matter is pinkish-gray tissue that includes neuronal cell bodies, dendrites, axon terminals, and glial cells. All synapses of the central nervous system are within the gray matter.

Neurotransmitter - d. type of signaling molecule

Neurotransmitter refers to the signaling molecules that help in the communication between neurons. It is released by the axon terminals. There are many neurotransmitter molecules such as serotonin, dopamine, epinephrine, and acetylcholine.

Pons - f. brain stem structure

The pons, medulla, and midbrain are referred to as the brain stem. It is a part of the hindbrain that influences breathing and serves as a functional bridge to the adjacent midbrain.

Corpus callosum - b. connects the hemispheres

Cerebrum is the largest area of the forebrain. It is involved in receiving sensory signals, integrating information, and initiating involuntary actions. A fissure called corpus callosum divides the cerebrum into the right and left hemispheres, and relays signals between the two hemispheres.

Cerebral cortex - g. controls language, reasoning

Cerebral cortex is the outermost portion of the cerebrum...
