Caption: Brain sense areas. Coloured Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scan of a sagittal section through a healthy human brain showing the sense areas (red). Nerve impulses travel up the spinal cord and enter the q-shaped brainstem (at lower centre), which regulates the automatic functions of the body. Basic sensations, such as pain, are then perceived and interpreted by the thalamus (at centre). Finally sense signals reach the outer part of the brain, the cerebral cortex of the cerebrum. Here, in a thin, c-shaped region, sense information from all over the body is processed. Visual data is dealt with in the visual cortex at the back of the brain (at centre right).
