Example text

2). The cerebellum coordinates voluntary muscle movement, motor learning, cognitive functions and balance and posture. It ensures that muscle movements are smooth, coordinated and precise. Motor commands are not initiated in the cerebellum; rather, the cerebellum modifies the motor commands of the descending pathways to make movements more adaptive and accurate. Although the cerebellum accounts for approximately 10% of the brain’s volume, it contains over 50% of the total number of neurons in the brain.

1). Midbrain The midbrain contains nuclei that process auditory and visual information and reflexes. It is also maintains consciousness. It provides a conduction pathway that connects the cerebrum with the lower brain structures and spinal cord. Pons The pons connects and communicates with the cerebellum. The pons works with the medulla oblongata to control the depth and rate of respiration and contains nuclei that function in visceral and somatic motor control. Medulla oblongata The medulla oblongata is a relay station for sensory nerves going to the cerebrum.

First systole phase During the systole phase, the right ventricle receives impulses from the Purkinje fibres and contracts. The atrioventricular valves close and the semilunar valves open. The deoxygenated blood is pumped into the pulmonary artery. The pulmonary valve prevents the blood from flowing back into the right ventricle. The pulmonary artery carries the blood to the lungs for gas exchange. The oxygenated blood returns to the left atrium by the pulmonary veins. Second diastole phase The bundle of His is a collection of heart muscle cells specialised for electrical conduction that transmits the electrical impulses from the AV node to the point of the apex of the fascicular branches.
