Amygdala – limbic structure involved in many brain functions, including emotion, learning and memory. It is part of a system that processes "reflexive" emotions like fear and anxiety. Cerebellum – governs movement. Cingulate gyrus – plays a role in processing conscious emotional experience. Fornix – an arch-like structure that connects the hippocampus to other parts of the limbic system. Frontal lobe – helps control skilled muscle movements, mood, planning for the future, setting goals and judging priorities. Hippocampus – plays a significant role in the formation of long-term memories. Medulla oblongata – contains centers for the control of vital processes such as heart rate, respiration, blood pressure, and swallowing. Limbic system – a group of interconnected structures that mediate emotions, learning and memory. Occipital lobe – helps process visual information. Parahippocampal gyrus – an important connecting pathway of the limbic system. Parietal lobe – receives and processes information about temperature, taste, touch, and movement coming from the rest of the body. Reading and arithmetic are also processed in this region. Pons – contains centers for the control of vital processes, including respiration and cardiovascular functions. It also is involved in the coordination of eye movements and balance. Temporal lobe – processes hearing, memory and language functions. Thalamus – a major relay station between the senses and the cortex (the outer layer of the brain consisting of the parietal, occipital, frontal and temporal lobes).

The grey wrinkly matter, which is arranged into ridges called gyri (singular gyrus) separated by deep grooves called sulci (singular sulcus), is the cortex of the brain, and is made up principally of the cell bodies of pyramidal neurons embedded in a support matrix comprised of glial cells and glycolipids such as cerebrosides. Beneath this is the white matter, which is made up of the ascending and descending myelinated (fat coated) axons (neuronal extensions) connecting the cortex with lower gray clusters of neurons called nuclei, such as the thalamic, hypothalamic, cranial nerve and brainstem nuclei, and similar structures called ganglia, such as the basal ganglia.
