Caption: Brain. Coloured magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan of a sagittal section through a healthy human brain, seen superimposed on an outline of a human head. The cerebrum (blue) of the brain is seen at centre. Below it is the brainstem (purple), which links the brain to the spinal cord. To the right of the brainstem is the cerebellum (green and orange). The cerebrum is the largest part of the brain, and controls conscious thoughts and actions. The brainstem controls unconscious actions such as breathing. The cerebellum controls balance and posture. MRI scanning uses a powerful magnet and radio waves to produce slice images through body tissues.
