Ch 6 of Biology Book - Table on page 169

Post by SungHoonPark97 » Tue Jul 03, 2018 7:22 pm

On page 169 of the biology book, there's a table of parts of the brain and their function.

In the table, there are several definitions/words that the chapter never goes over throughout the chapter in the diagram (examples: hindbrain, midbrain, inferior colliculus, hippothalamus, etc.). Where can I find more information about these?

Also, is there a picture to go along with the table to help understand the material? I tried looking some up on the internet, but I'm still confused on which part goes where since most of the internet ones are very complicated.

Hey SungHoonPark97,
Good question! The MCAT asks about this stuff most in the Psych/Sociology section, so we put that information there. I know, its really more bio, but the psych passages on the MCAT have a ton of neurology questions. You can find a good table with that info on page 11 and 12 of the psych book. Hope that helps.

Hello Mr. Phil,

I have read the first chapter of the Psy/Soc textbook, and it was actually exactly the same as the Nervous System chapter of the Biology textbook, meaning I could not find a good diagram/picture of the brain labelling all the parts of the brain in Table 3 nor could I find more detail on these parts.
Is there any other way I could find a good picture/more details?

Thank you.

If you're looking for the definitions or functions of all the different brain areas, those are laid out in table 3. Figure 9 right above shows the location of some of the major areas. We don't have a figure (as far as I know) in the content showing the location of every brain area because neuroanatomy isn't typically tested on the MCAT beyond the big strokes.
