brain

THE BRAINS
The brains consist of three parts: the large brains (cerebrum), the small brains (cerebellum) and brainstem. The brains are protected by the skull and between the two hemispheres are called between brains. The brains make 2% of the total body weight, but in the hundreds of billions of nerve cells that compose them houses all cognitive and emotional functions.

HEMISPHERE
in the cerebral hemispheres are conscious feelings, intellectual skills, emotions and voluntary motor located.

CORTEX
The cortex is the outermost layer of the large brains and consists of gray matter.

FRONTAL LOBE
The frontal lobe is considered the seat of thought, the will, ability to plan, the concept of good and evil and the voluntary motor system.

PARIETAL LOBE
The parietal lobe is responsible for the perceiving, recognizing and interpreting sensory information of touch.

OCCIPITAL LOBE
The occipital lobe controls visual perception, recognition and interpretation of images.

TEMPORAL BONE LOBE
The temporal bone frontal lobe is responsible for observing, recognizing and interpreting pure or complex sounds (speech, music, etc.).

SMALL BRAINS
The small brains are connected to the brain and are involved in coordinating movements and maintaining balance.

BRAINS BETWEEN
Between the brains consist of three structures (hypothalamus, thalamus, epithalamus) and below the cerebral hemispheres.

BRAINSTEM
The brainstem controls vital functions such as regulating breathing and heart rate.

HYPOTHALAMUS
The hypothalamus plays an important role in the functioning of the organism to regulate the heartbeat and breathing, maintaining body temperature and controlling the feeling of hunger and satiety. The hypothalamus also has an important endocrine function because it secretes many hormones, or verify that excretion.

THALAMUS
The thalamus consists of gray matter and sensory processing and sensory information is then sent to the cerebral cortex.

PITUITARY
This small gland is connected to the hypothalamus and secretes many hormones.

DID YOU KNOW:

Man Gay sapiens or a bipedal primate species in the family Hominidae. Research suggests that modern humans about 200,000 years ago in Africa emerged as a species. Humans have highly developed brains, which he is capable of abstract thinking, language, introspection, problem solving and emotion. Thanks to his intelligence and upright posture, allowing the arms to be free to pick up objects and manipulate, the man much more than other species able to use tools.
