1.2. Autonomic

1.2.1. Sympathetic Fight or Flight

1.2.2. Parasympathetic Rest & Digest

2. Central Nervous System

2.1. Brain

2.1.1. Forebrain Telencephalon Cerebrum (2 cerebral hemispheres) Diencephalon Thalamus Subthalamus Hypothalamus

2.1.2. Midbrain Integration of sensory information (visual, auditory, somatosensory) into motor signals that help orient the head toward various stimuli. Responsible for auditory and visual reflexes, as well as refining of motor movements.

2.1.3. Hindbrain Pons Medulla oblongata Cerebellum

2.2. Spinal Cord

2.2.1. Receipt of sensory information and initial processing. Indirectly responsible for movement as all voluntary motor stimuli are processed here.
