This page continues our functional guide, to the areas of Cerebellum and Brain Stem. These lower brain structures not only control movement and the involuntary nervous system, but are more interrelated than once thought. While our charts give a localized view of the function of the brain, the more we learn from medical science, the clearer it becomes that the brain is a synergistic organ, where the all of its structures working together is key for even the most primitive functions.
