The top of the brain as you can see is the cerebrum, with all the squigley wrinkles and it is divided into hemispheres and lobes. To put it simply; this part controls thinking ability, but their are regions within this section that control other thinking areas. Left brain controls the logical reading, talking and intellectual parts while the right is creativity, music and art. Right underneath that is the cerebellum, which controls coordination and the ability to control your muscles, meaning all forms of movement. The Hypothalmus controls desires like hunger, thirst, and mood and the Thalmus recieves all the nerve signals from the spinal cord and sends them up to the cerebrum. Lastly, Optic nerves obviously control the complex system of sight and your eyeballs.
My group did not dissect little lamby brain at the midsaggital plane, we actually dissected it transversely in order to view some of these key parts as sort of a brain sandwich.
Hope that wasn't too disturbing for the viewer! Thanks to this brain dissection, we are one step closer to understanding the nervous system and the body as a whole unit.
