1. Outer Parts of the Brain
These are traditional names for areas of the brain. They are very important to learn for anyone talking about the brain. We will use these terms often.
The Central Sulcus (sulcus=groove) indicates the functional division between the front and back of the brain.

The Lobes were named after bone plates of the skull before people knew how the brain worked.

The Brain stem is a complicated net of connections of sensory and motor nerves, and controls many instinctual operations such as walking, breathing and eye movement.

The Cerebellum at the back of the brain stem controls muscle coordination.
