This project is a two-day in-class project in which the students will be asked to apply their knowledge of the nervous system in a higher-level fashion by representing what they feel the brain functions are. Included is a resource diagram of the brain, brainstem & cerebellum. Also included is a list of what occurs in each part of the brain.
INSIDE THE SKULL, housed are these areas: anterior fossa, middle fossa, and posterior fossa. The posterior fossa contains the brainstem, cerebellum, and cranial nerves IV-XII. The posterior fossa (orange color) is formed by the occipital bone, which has a large hole (foramen magnum) for passage of the spinal cord.
