10 Mar brain stem

The brain stem connects the cerebrum with the cerebellum and the spinal cord. It is the area of the brain that helps regulate involuntary functions of the body (visceral and facial) and cognitive motor skills (skills that require thinking, like typing). The brain stem shares many functions with its neighbor to the south, the spinal cord.
