Caption: Human skull and brain. Composite image of a side view (sagittal) section through a human brain (yellow) superimposed on a model of a skull. The human skull is made up of 22 bones and consists of a cranium that encloses the brain and the bones of the face and jaw. The brain's cerebellum (centre left) is responsible for posture, balance and the coordination of movement. The heavily-folded cerebrum, is where conscious mental activity occurs. It consists of around ten billion nerve cells. The corpus callosum (centre) is a band of nerve fibres that connects the two brain hemispheres together.
