Structure and Control Centers of the Brain
The Cerebrum or cortex is the largest part of the human brain, associated with higher brain function such as thought and action.
The Cerebellum receives information from the sensory systems, the spinal cord, and other parts of the brain and then regulates motor movements.The cerebellum coordinates voluntary movements such as posture, balance, coordination, and speech, resulting in smooth, balanced muscular activity.
The Brain Stem has many basic functions, including regulation of heart rate, breathing, sleeping, and eating.
