Szyszynka is a small pea-shaped gland in the brain. Its function is not fully understood. Researchers know that it produces and regulates certain hormones, including melatonin. Melatonin is best known for its role in regulating sleep patterns. Sleep patterns are also called circadian rhythms. Learn more about pineal gland function.   Szyszynka also plays a […]

medulla oblongata function

Major function of the Medulla oblongata

The medulla oblongata is in the brainstem, before the cerebellum. It is a conical, neuronal (nerve cell) mass in the back brain that controls many autonomic (involuntary) functions. The main medulla oblongata function of the hill is the processing of information into and from the spinal cord and cerebellum.   Medulla oblongata helps regulate breathing, […]

cerebellum function

Cerebellum function & Disorders

The cerebellum is located behind the upper part of the brain stem (where the spinal cord is in contact with the brain) and consists of two hemispheres (halves). It receives information from sensory systems, the spinal cord and other parts of the brain, and then regulates motor motions.   The cerebellum coordinates voluntary movements such […]

midbrain function

Midbrain function & Structures | Major function midbrain

The midbrain is a part of the brainstem connecting the upper brain and forebrains. Many nerves run through the midbrains that connect the brain to the cerebellum and other posterior brain structures.   The midbrain function is to support the movement, as well as visual and auditory processing. Damage to some areas of the midbrain […]

brainstem function

Brainstem function Location & structures| Main function

The brain stem is the area of the brain that connects the brain to the spinal cord. It consists of the midbrain, medulla, and bridge. Motor and sensory neurons travel through the brainstem to allow signals to be transmitted between the brain and the spinal cord. Most cranial nerves are in the brainstem. Read below […]

myelin sheath function

Myelin sheath function & (Major) Causes,Symptoms

The myelin sheath function is to protect and isolate the axons and improve their transmission of electrical impulses. If myelin is damaged, the transmission of these impulses is slowed down, which is observed in severe neurological conditions, such as multiple sclerosis. Read on more about myelin sheath function.   myelin sheath function Neurons can be […]

avm brain

AVM brain | Major Symptoms of AVM brain | What is an AVM

The brain arteriovenous malformation (AVM brain) is a tangle of abnormal blood vessels that connect the arteries and veins in the brain. Arteries are responsible for getting oxygen-rich blood from the heart to the brain. The veins carry oxygen-free blood back to the lungs and heart. The AVM brain disturbs this important process.     […]

arteriovenous malformation brain

Arteriovenous malformation brain (Major) Causes & Risk,Diagnosed

Your cardiovascular system consists of the heart and blood vessels. There are three kinds of blood vessels in the circulatory system: veins, capillaries, and arteries. Arteriovenous malformation defects (AVM) are defects in the blood vessels of the circulatory system. Read below for arteriovenous malformation brain   A developmental defect is an abnormal combination of veins […]
