Figure 1. Brain Diagram showing the pituitary gland, hypothalams and the brain.
The hindbrain part contans 4 imporatant parts which are : The pituitary
gland, cerebellum, pons, and the medulla oblongata.
Pituitary Gland: The pitituray gland is the
smallest oart of the brain, as it is only the size of a pea. This part of the brain is responsible for the hormones in
your body. Your pituitary gland sends out signals to the hormones to bel realased which help you grow, gain facial hair, for
girls begin menstrating, and just overall body body changes. This galnd is also repsonsible for signalling your metabolism
hormones, and controling the sugars in your body.
Pons: Pons are an important oart of the brain that act as a relay station.
Pons passes the information between the two regions of cerebellum, and between the cerebellum, and medulla.
Medulla Oblongata: The medulla is a region of the hind brain that joins the
spinal cord to the cerebellum
Figure 2: The Location of the Cerebellum
The Cerebellum: The cerebellum is significantly smaller
than the cerbrum, and is located at the bottom rear of the brain. The size of the cerebellum is no match to its importance.
This is because, it is the portion of your brain that is responsible for balance, movement, and coordination. All of witch
help your muscles move together.
