A study of the absorption spectra of sulfides, thiosulfates and thionates with reference to structural relationships ...
The two hemispheres are separated by a groove called the interhemispheric fissure. For instance, the ability to form words seems to lie primarily in the left hemisphere, while the right hemisphere seems to control many abstract reasoning skills. In vertebrate anatomy, the brainstem is the posterior part of the brain adjoining, and structurally continuous with, the spinal cord.
When one side of the brain is damaged, the opposite side of the body is affected. Hypothalamus This is a small structure present in the diencephalon that plays a vital role in maintaining homeostasis, that is, a state of equilibrium within the body.
It makes the movement of the body smooth, steady and coordinated. Creatine Meat has plenty of creatine, similar to Vitamin B12. Explaining complex brain functions is quite a task, since brain is the only organ that makes humans capable of learning language, art, rational thinking and judgment.
It is enclosed in a bony case called cranium which protects brain against external injury. The cerebral hemispheres have the following functions: i They govern the mental abilities like learning, memory, intelligence, thinking etc. Each cerebral hemisphere can be divided into sections, or lobes, each of which specializes in different functions.
The corpus callosum is in the center of the brain and its functions. Parietal lobe helps in recognition of spatial relationships, that is, realization of the exact point of tactile sensation, the brain and its functions of discrimination between two points of tactile stimulation etc. Such processes are driven by molecular guidance cues as well as by anatomic structures at the tip of the growth cone.
Temporal region: The side region of the cerebrum thought to be involved in auditory processing. Shaywitz 2004 reports success in teaching compensation skills to children with severe dyslexia beginning at an early age and continuing throughout school. Those pathways that are activated by the environment are strengthened while the ones that go unused are eliminated. It's very important not to judge children based on their physical appearance.
Vitamin B-12, also known as cobalamin, is renowned for its functions, but its overlooked function is its effect on the brain.
Limbic System The limbic system lies inside the cerebrum.
Cerebellum is partially divided into three lobes: central vermis, two lateral lobes and outer floccular lobes.
The hypothalamus regulates the functions of the organism, for example, sleep cycles, body temperature, hunger, and mood.
The meninges protect the brain from external shock.
