Write in detail about structure of brain

Dear Student,
Brain is the highest coordinating centre in the body. It is covered by meninges, which is made up of three layers. It is protected by cranium. Brain is divided into-
1.Forebrain-It includes cerebrum and olfactory lobes. Cerebrum is the largest part of the brain. It consists of two cerebral hemispheres. The olfactory lobes consists of occipital lobe(vision), temporal lobe(reception of sound), parietal lobe(touch, smell, temperature) and frontal lobe(muscular activities).
2.Midbrain-It is a small part of the brain that connects cerebrum with the other parts of the brain.
3.Hindbrain-It consists of cerebellum, pons and medulla oblongata. Cerebellum is responsible for coordination of movement and posture. Pons regulate respiration. Medulla is the control centre for vomiting, coughing etc.
