...brain? To start with, damage to the alerting areas of the brain, the brain stem and the midbrain, most likely can result to loss of consciousness. The first evidence is that consciousness cannot exist without the cortex working accordingly. Without this part, it would not be possible to comprehend speech, plan, move, solve problems, or express emotions. All these are aspects of consciousness. Second evidence is the brain stem. The hypothalamus is responsible for the sleep cycle; therefore, the suprachiasmatic nucleus controls the preoptic nucleus that induces sleep. By inhibiting the reticular activating system...

The brain and the spinal code together are called the central nervous system (CNS). Brain is the most complicated component of the CNS. Let us have a look on how the brain develops and works. By the 17th - 20th day of gestation, the primitive embryo grows as the neural plate, which is a sheet of cells that finally develop into the nervous system of a man. The spinal cord is developed during third and fourth weeks. The cerebral hemispheres separate in the fifth week. Brain functions through activity of neural circuits. These circuits are formed... ...

The corpus callosum is part of brain structure situated along the longitudinal fissures that carries out communication between the two hemispheres of the brain. It allows the connection between the left and right hemispheres of the brain. The split-brain patient’s two hemispheres are separated in that their left hemisphere does not recognize what the left hemisphere is doing. Each hemisphere functions differently since it is conscious of its own, and both the right and left hemispheres may be conscious... ?...
