    Her occipital lobes in the front of her brain started it by recognizing the sound of the bus. Her cerebellum at the base of her brain started it by raising her heart rate, so she could move quickly. Her cerebellum in the center of her brain started it by coordinating her muscle movements. Her occipital lobes in the back of her brain started it by interpreting the visual image of the bus.
