Caption: Brain on skull X-ray. Coloured composite image of a sectioned brain (purple) on an X-ray of a skull (green). The front of the skull is at right. Blood vessels (yellow) supply and drain blood from the brain. They were injected with a radio-opaque dye that allowed them to be detected on this X-ray. The brain consists mostly of the folded cerebrum, which controls conscious activity and thought. The cerebellum (lower left of brain) is a distinct structure with many small folds. It controls functions such as balance. The brainstem (right of cerebellum) controls automatic and unconscious functions such as breathing.
