Caption: Human brain. Vertical slice through a healthy brain, sectioned coronally from left to right. This cut in the middle of the brain exposes major anatomical regions. Extensive convolutions of the cerebrum are seen at top and sides, where higher conscious thought processes occur with voluntary body activity. The cerebrum comprises most of the brain and is made up of outer grey and inner white matter. Inner cavities or ventricles of the brain (upper centre) are normally fluid-filled. Tracts of nerve fibres pass into the brainstem (lower centre) which controls basic functions such as breathing, and is linked to the spinal cord. An adult human brain weighs about 1400 grams.
