Brain Structures and Their Functions The nervous system is your body's decision and communication center. The central nervous system (CNS) is made of the brain and the spinal cord and the peripheral nervous system (PNS) is made of nerves. Together they control every part of your daily life, from breathing and blinking to helping you memorize facts for a test. Nerves reach from your brain to your face, ears, eyes, nose, and spinal cord... and from the spinal cord to the rest of your body. Sensory nerves gather information from the environment, send that info to the spinal cord, which then speed the message to the brain. The brain then makes sense of that message and fires off a response. The brain is made of three main parts: the forebrain, midbrain, and hindbrain. The Cerebrum: The cerebrum or cortex is the largest part of the human brain, associated with higher brain function such as thought and action. What do each of these lobes do? Note that the cerebral cortex is highly wrinkled.

untitled Digital Atlas- Klinik für Psychiatrie und Psychotherapie III - Universitätsklinikum Ulm This is a freely available digital atlas of frequency of vascularisation, obtained from N = 38 healthy participants scanned with the time-of-flight magnetic resonance technique. Images are available in NIfTI format in different voxel sizes: Table. Volumes made available as part of the atlas. mm: millimetres; MB: megabytes. The main source of information is the atlas in the original high resolution. When using these data to interpret findings of other studies, it should be remembered that the quality of spatial correspondence is limited by possible difficulties in redressing differences in brain shape induced by the geometry of the magnetic field of the original volumes, by the signal loss due to different susceptibility artefacts, and the possible use of customized normalization templates across specific studies and human populations.
