        1. eg: swallowing, breathing
      2. Pons
        1. helps relay messages from the cortex and the cerebellum
        2. Brain Stem
          1. coordinates and relays motor control signals sent between the brain and the body
          2. Cerebellum
            1. controls motor movement coordination, balance, equilibrium, and muscle tone
            2. Hypothalamus
              1. responsible for motivational behaviour
              2. Amygdala
                1. responsible for the response and memory of emotions especially fear
                2. Hippocampus
                  1. assists with the storage of long term memories
                  2. Thalamus
                    1. diagnoses different sensory information
                    2. Cerebral cortex
                      1. Frontal lobe
                        1. to make decisions
                        2. Parietal lobe
                          1. process sensory information
                          2. Temporal lobe
                            1. receives sensory information from the ears
                            2. Occipital lobe
                              1. receives sensory information from the eyes
                          3. the way it works
                            1. thinking brain
                              1. consciously process and reflect on information
                              2. reactive brain
                                1. reacts to information instinctively
                                2. major brain elements help control information that brain takes in
                                  1. reticular activating system (RAS)
                                    1. limbic system
                                      1. transmitter dopamine
                                    2. human memory
                                      1. sensory memory
                                        1. short-term memory
                                          1. long-term memory
                                            1. declarative memory (explicit memory)
                                              1. non-declarative memory (implicit memory)
