Buffalo Hosp videos Buffalo Hospital will host a live webcast of a Total Knee Replacement surgery on Thursday, December 18th. The broadcast can be viewed at www.buffalohospital.org. Dana Harms, MD, board certified orthopedic surgeon, will perform the surgery and David Labadie, MD, board certified orthopedic surgeon, will provide commentary.

Brain Atlas - Introduction The central nervous system (CNS) consists of the brain and the spinal cord, immersed in the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF). Weighing about 3 pounds (1.4 kilograms), the brain consists of three main structures: the cerebrum, the cerebellum and the brainstem. Cerebrum - divided into two hemispheres (left and right), each consists of four lobes (frontal, parietal, occipital and temporal). The outer layer of the brain is known as the cerebral cortex or the ‘grey matter’. It covers the nuclei deep within the cerebral hemisphere e.g. the basal ganglia; the structure called the thalamus, and the ‘white matter’, which consists mostly of myelinated axons.
