Part of the brain stem responsible for eye movement and auditory and visual processing.

A. Pons

B. Medulla oblongata

C. Midbrain

D. Thalamus


Responsible for emotional responses, especially those related to survival, as well as long term memory. Made up of the amygdala, the hippocampus, and the hypothalamus.

A. The limbic system

B. The midbrain

C. Hippocampus

D. Motor cortex


Controls balance, walking, and standing. Posterior to the temporal lobe and inferior to the occipital lobe.

A. Cerebrum

B. Cerebellum
