It additionally brings the instruments of hemispheric specialization to a primary challenge of cognitive neuroscience: modularity and intermodular verbal exchange.

Sample text

T he forebrain or prosencephalon consists of the telencephalon, the paired cerebral hemispheres, and the diencephalon. The diencephalon contains functional centers for the integration of all information passing from the brainstem and spinal cord to the cerebral hemispheres as well as the integration of motor and visceral activities. The two cerebral hemispheres integrate the highest mental functions such as the awareness of sensations and emotions, learning and memory, intelligence and creativity, and language.

CAUDAL PART OF THE MIDBRAIN Posteriorly, the inferior colliculi are separated by the periaqueductal gray matter surrounding the cerebral aqueduct (Fig. 3-12). Anteriorly is located the cerebral peduncle which, from posterior to anterior, consists of the tegmentum, substantia nigra, and cerebral crus. The large interpeduncular fossa is between the cerebral crura. ROSTRAL PART OF MIDBRAIN Posteriorly, the superior colliculi are partially separated by the periaqueductal gray matter and cerebral aqueduct (Fig.

The caudal half of the medulla contains a prolongation of the central canal of the spinal cord and is referred to as the closed part of the medulla. The posterior surface of the rostral half of the medulla forms the caudal or medullary part of the floor of the fourth ventricle, the cerebrospinal fluid-filled cavity between the cerebellum and the pons and open medulla (Fig. 3-2). The rostral half of the medulla is referred to as the open part. The medulla contains nuclei related to the vestibulocochlear (VIII), glossopharyngeal (IX), vagus (X), cranial part of the accessory (XI), and hypoglossal (XII) cranial nerves and also contains centers that are associated with equilibrium, audition, deglutition, coughing, vomiting, salivation, tongue movements, respiration, and circulation.
