What part of the brain is responsible for agression and fear?

Amygdala

100

Which side of the brain is associated with creativity and imagination?

Right Hemisphere

100

What is the intricate fabric of interconnected neural cells covering the cerebral hemispheres; the body’s ultimate control and information-processing center

Cerebral cortex

100

What are neuron?

Nerve cells the basic building building blocks of the nervous system

100

What structures does the forebrain include?

Cortex, corpus callosum, and subcortical

200

What part of the brain regulates emotions, motor functions, planning, and higher reasoning

Frontal lobe

200

Which side of the brain is associated with logic and systematic thinking

Left Hemisphere

200

What is an area at the front of the parietal lobes that registers and processes body touch and movement sensations?

Somatosensory Cortex

200

How do neurons transmit messages and how is it defined?

Dentrities fibers receive and integrate info sending it toward the cell body

200

What is the midbrain?

visual and auditory processing and its connections to reflexes

300

What is the primary Auditory (hearing) cortex?

Temporal Lobe

300

What connects the right and left hemishpere?

Corpus Callosum

300

What is an area at the rear of the frontal lobes that controls voluntary movements?

Motor cortex

300

What are neurotransmitters?

chemical messengers that cross the synaptic gaps between neurons. When released by the sending neuron, neurotransmitters travel across the synapse and bind to receptor sites on the receiving neuron, thereby influencing whether that neuron will generate a neural impulse.

Hindbrain structures?

Medulla oblingata, pons, reticular formation, and cerebellum
