Brain Anatomy

If you or a loved one has experienced a brain injury, it can be helpful to understand the basic anatomy of the human brain, which controls countless aspects of our thinking, our feelings, our movements and our interactions with others. The main parts of the brain are:

  • The cerebral cortex, the broad outermost area of the brain, is involved in higher functions like decision making. It includes the occipital lobe, the parietal lobe, and the frontal and temporal lobes.
  • The cerebellum, which plays a role in certain body movements.
  • The brain stem, which helps control involuntary functions.
  • The basal ganglia, a cluster of nerve tissue at the brain's core that is believed to aid in the coordination between different parts of the brain.

The brain is an incredibly complex, highly sensitive organ, with many parts that are not fully understood by scientists. Equipping yourself with knowledge can help you advocate for an injured loved one and communicate effectively with doctors. We will help you with this.
