Me, the Brain

By: Erica Nah :)

Introduction

I have four main parts, and those four main parts are called the cerebrum, cerebellum, the limbic system, and the brain stem. These parts are a team, and if one of these parts are gone, some of your body systems/parts won't function properly, or you would even die!

The Limbic System

The limbic system contains the thalamus, hypothalamus, amygdala, and hippocampus. It's nickname is called, "the emotional brain" because this part of my body is in charge of emotions, memory, movement, motor function, sense of smell, and much more. The limbic system is located on top of the brain stem, and buried under the cerebrum.
