Central Nervous System
Cerebrum (2 cerebral hemispheres)
Contains primary motor areas and thusregulates voluntary motor activity. The left(dominant) side is associated withlanguage (motor aspect).
Initial cortical processing and perception oflimb position.
Processing of auditory information,involved in language, learning and feelings.
Processing of visual information association and recognition.
Involved with emotions and other reactionsto stimuli.
Associated with a variety of functions,including control of voluntary motormovements.
Associated mainly with memory,particularly longterm memory, also playsan important role in spatial navigation.
The hypothalamus is responsible forthe regulation of certain metabolicprocesses and other activities of theautonomic nervous system.
Integration in voluntary movement andmuscle tone.
Responsible for auditoryand visual reflexes, as well as refining ofmotor movements.
The main function of the thalamus is torelay motor and sensory signals to thecerebral cortex (except olfactory).
Responsible formovement as all voluntary motor stimuliare processed here.
