The Forebrain Of The CNS
01 Apr 2019
The brain controls all the body parts. It weighs just 3 pounds. When a message receives from any part of the body the brain tells the body how to react to it properly. The brain is protected by the skull. Forebrain, midbrain, and the Hindbrain are the three sections of the brain. Forebrain is the largest and complex part of the brain and it has cerebrum. The Cerebrum is responsible to control all our emotions, speech, and personality. The cerebrum includes the right and left hemispheres. The left hemisphere is for logical and objective analysis whereas the right side is for being creative and subjective. (When we use calculations the left side works and when we are listening to music the right side works). The outer layer of the cerebrum is called the brain’s cortex. The information from the five senses is collected by the cortex. The hypothalamus and pituitary glands are situated in the inner part of the forebrain. The Hypothalamus controls the necessary feelings of our body and the pituitary glands control the body’s vital metabolism. Messages received are sent to the spinal cord via the Midbrain which is located at the bottom of the Forebrain.
