Brain anatomy. Illustration of the outline of a man's head showing his brain anatomy. The folded cerebrum (orange area) is used for memory, conscious thought and movement. The branched cerebellum (at lower right) controls involuntary muscular coordination, balance and posture. To the left of the cerebellum is the q-shaped brainstem (dark blue) which joins onto the spinal column and coordinates primitive reflexes. Above the brainstem is the limbic system, which controls moods and instincts. This includes the c-shaped corpus callosum (below cerebrum) which surrounds the thalamus (light blue). To the left of the brainstem is the tear-shaped pituitary gland.
