The hippocampus and amygdala are concerned with certain types of learning, and the limbic system in general is implicated in emotion. Corpus callosum Cingulate gyrus Fornix Uncus Parahippocampal gyrus Fig. 7. Medial surface of the human left cerebral hemisphere. Section A – Organization of the nervous system A6 B RAIN IMAGING Key Notes Computer assisted tomography (CAT) A CAT scan produces a series of X-ray images, each one a slice, of living brain. 5 mm. Its main use is in the diagnosis of neurological disorders that can be revealed anatomically.

The afterhyperpolarization is responsible for the relative refractory period. Voltage clamping Voltage clamping is a technique that allows the current that flows across nerve cell membranes to be measured. It does this by holding the membrane potential constant. It provided the crucial evidence that action potentials are caused by an early inward current due to sodium and a late outward current due to potassium. These currents can be blocked independently by tetrodotoxin and tetraethylammonium respectively.

In addition, the brainstem contains the nuclei of most cranial nerves. A core of highly interconnected nuclei extending through the brainstem constitutes the reticular system. g. the midbrain dopamine cells mentioned above) use amine transmitters. The reticular system is involved in orchestrating global brain functions such as motivation, arousal, sleep and wakefulness and connects widely with the forebrain. The diencephalon in the adult is differentiated into a dorsal thalamus and a ventral hypothalamus.
