Caption: Brain. Coloured three-dimensional magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan of a healthy human brain. The front of the brain is at left. The largest part of the brain, the cerebrum, is made up of ridges (gyri) separated by fissures (sulci). It controls conscious thoughts and actions. Below the cerebrum at lower centre is the brainstem, which links the brain to the spinal cord (not seen) and controls essential functions such as breathing. To the right of the brainstem is the cerebellum (red), which controls balance and posture. MRI scanning uses a powerful magnet and radio waves to build up slice images through the body. These can be combined to create 3-D views.
