Brain scan abstract. Coloured Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scan through a human head, showing a healthy brain in side view. Radiating light is emanating from the background. The face is seen in profile at left. Tissues of the mouth, nasal cavity, and central nervous system are visible. The folded cerebrum of the brain (at top) makes up the larger part of the brain; conscious thought and memory are processed in the cerebrum. At centre (red) is the elongated brainstem which controls involuntary reflexes like breathing and eye reflexes; it connects with the spinal cord. To the right of the brainstem is the cerebellum (blue) involved in body posture and balance.
