Lab 2 - Internal Organization of the Brain^

Purpose:

The main objectives of this exercise are to familiarize you with the internal structure of the brain by introducing important structures at representative levels, and to provide you with an appreciation of the three dimensional organization of the brain by relating these internal structures to the external landmarks you learned in lab 1.

The surface morphology of the brain should be carefully reviewed and the internal structures should be correlated with the external morphology and with the atlas. Please keep in mind that there may be one or more terms for a particular structure. In general, the present day terminology is one with a functional basis, i.e., a tract or pathway or nuclear group is usually named for the modality mediated or for the origin and/or termination of that particular pathway.
