________ Extends Through Hindbrain Midbrain And Forebrain
"the ________ extends through the hindbrain, midbrain, and forebrain."
"the Reticular formation extends through the hindbrain, midbrain, and forebrain."
The brain is a complex organ. It acts as the control center of the body. There are three major divisions of the brain, the forebrain (prosencephalon), midbrain (mesencephalon), and hindbrain (rhombencephalon).
The forebrain is by far the largest brain division. It includes the cerebrum, which counts for about two-thirds of the brain’s mass and covers most other brain structures The forebrain has two major parts, the diencephalon and the telencephalon. The forebrain is responsible for functions related to thinking, perceiving, and evaluating sensory information.
The midbrain also called the mesencephalon connects the hindbrain and the forebrain. The midbrain serves important functions in motor movement, particularly eye movements and in auditory and visual processing. The midbrain regulates movement and aids in the processing of auditory and visual information.
The hindbrain is composed of two subregions called the metencephalon and myelencephalon. There are three main parts of hindbrain, such as pons, cerebellum, and medulla oblongata. The hindbrain assists the regulation of autonomic functions, maintaining balance and equilibrium, movement coordination, and the relay of sensory information.
The reticular formation is a set of interconnected nuclei which are located throughout the brainstem. Reticular formation extends through the hindbrain, midbrain, and forebrain.
