Caption: Brain. Artwork of a section through a healthy human brain. The main part of the brain is the heavily-folded cerebrum (brown), where conscious mental activity occurs. At the rear of the brain is the cerebellum (brown, bottom right), which is involved in posture, balance and the coordination of movement. The brainstem (seen here as transparent) controls basic bodily functions. The limbic system is yellow, and the thalamus (pink oval) lies below the corpus callosum (white), a band of nerve fibres that connects the two hemispheres of the brain. The pituitary gland (red oval) is at lower left.
