With staining techniques first developed by his scientific rival Golgi, however, Ramón y Cajal was able to see the outline of entire neurons, and thereby show that neurons were indeed distinct cells. This principle, that the neuron is a distinct anatomical and functional unit forms the foundation for the neuron doctrine. Other associated claims include the idea that information flow in the neuron is unidirectional, from dendrites to the soma to the axon, and that the neuron can only develop in the prenatal brain from an undifferentiated neuroblast.

It may be thought of as that part of the brain that is reactive as opposed to contemplative, transforming an incoming stimulus directly into a motor action, assuming that this action is not inhibited by higher brain centers (there are no lizard philosophers, nor do they spend much time contemplating the meaning of life). 2. 2 A sagittal section showing the components of the reptilian brain. svg. THE BRAIN AS DESIGNED BY EVOLUTION: FUNCTIONAL NEUROANATOMY 19 • Medulla The medulla is responsible for the regulation of several autonomic functions including respiration, heart rate, and blood pressure.

Temporal lobe The temporal lobe is the destination of the ventral stream of visual processing, which, as also discussed in the section on the visual system, is responsible for naming and recognizing objects in the visual field. It is also the home of primary auditory processing in the brain. Through its connections with the hippocampus, also located in this division, the temporal lobe is involved in the translation of short-term memories into long-term memories. THE BRAIN AS DESIGNED BY EVOLUTION: FUNCTIONAL NEUROANATOMY 25 • Parietal lobe The parietal lobe is involved in integrating sensory information from the sensory modalities and visuo-spatial processing.
