    The diencephalon forms part of the central core of the forebrain that is surrounded by the cerebral hemispheres, and contains three main structures; the hypothalamus, the thalamus, and the epithalamus (Marieb & Hoehn, 2016). The thalamus is made up of bilateral egg-shaped nuclei, that in turn form the superolateral walls of the third ventricle; this makes up 80% of the diencephalon. The thalamus is thought of as a kind of hub of information, as it acts as a relay between the cerebral cortex and the

    Overview: The proposed work is designed to unravel detailed anatomical connections between hypothalamic OT neurons and distal brain neurons (Aim1 and 2) and their function in the CLA-EPd complex in order to begin understanding how this signaling system regulates social behavior (Aim3). We plan to combine our novel brain mapping tools with genetic and viral tools to examine neural connection of OT neurons, along with behavioral assays to begin learning how the OT signaling system controls social behavior

    The short occipitovertebral artery separates into two arteries: the occipital artery and the vertebral artery, which connects to the skull and vertebral column respectively. The top of the right and left vena cava are connected to the jugular vein and flow into the lingual vein from the mouth and maxillary vein. The internal jugular vein however; as well as the subscapular vein from the shoulder, receive blood from the innominate vein. The blood flows directly into the subclavian vein, formed by

    Mesencephalon, diencephalon, and the Telencephalon. The Myelencephalon and is the most posterior region of the brain. The Myelencephalon carries information between the medulla and the rest of the body. The Myelencephalon is made of reticular formations (called so because of its net appearance). The Myelencephalon is responsible handles many functions such as sleep, movement, maintenance of muscle tone, attention ( is important to speech), as well as other respiratory, circulatory,

    Brain Anatomy The central nervous system consists of two parts: the brain and the spinal cord. The brain is divided into four main structures: the cerebrum, diencephalon, brainstem, and cerebellum. The brainstem is at the base of the brain, and it extends from the upper spinal cord to the rear of the cerebrum; posterior to the brainstem is the cerebellum. The cerebrum is largest structure in the brain, and it is responsible for motor functions, perception, communication, and memory. It is divided

    R., 2012). The tectum is the roof and the tegmentum is the covering (Bailey, R., 2012). This is that portion of the brain that controls everything to do with the sight, body movement, and hearing (Bailey, R., 2012). The diencephalon is part of the forebrain. The diencephalon contains the thalamus and the hypothalamus (Bailey, R., 2012). The thalamus works with the cerebellum and the basil cortex that is located in the telecephalon with movement and coordination (genericlook.com, 2012). The hypothalamus

    nervous system, is the center of all mental activity. These activities include thought, learning, and memory. It is also the most complex and delicate organ within the body. Within the brain are four major regions which are the brainstem, cerebellum, diencephalon, and cerebrum. In an article about Human Brain: Facts, Functions and Anatomy it quotes that “The largest part of the human brain is the cerebrum, which is divided into two hemispheres. Underneath lies the brainstem, and behind that sits the cerebellum

    followed after treatment. More information about this post-injection phase will be discussed later. It is important to note that there is no treatment lasting less than 26 days for patients who only want to lose a few pounds. Simeons states that the diencephalon needs at least 3 weeks of treatment in order to make a difference, and anything less will yield little results. Something else to keep in mind is the careful planning of the treatment, and the fact that an early stop in HCG hormone drops can lead

    extend between the spinal cord and other parts of the brain. The Pons lies directly superior to the Medulla. Like the Medulla, the Pons is a bridge that connects parts of the brain with one another. The midbrain extends fro the Pons to the Diencephalon. The Midbrain contains both tracts and nuclei. The interior art of the midbrain contains a pair of tracts called Cerebral Pedunctis. They contain axons of corticospinal corticopontine and corticobolbar motor neurons. These conduct nerve impulses

    The Brain and Cranial Nerves      One of the most complex and fascinating things in the human body is the brain. The body is “capable of almost everything, but it would not be possible, without the brain receiving information, and analyzing the information.”      The brain is aware of its surroundings, via input from the spinal cord and cranial nerves. Cranial nerves with sensory functions allow us to smell and see. Nerves with both motor and sensory
