The Neuron- Up Close and Personal
Now we are looking at a cross-section of the hindbrain of a rat.
Can you tell what structure this is? Do you see the convoluted material that is dark purple? That is the cerebellum. What other structures do you see? What is beneath the cerebellum? Although it is diffcult to tell exactly what level we are seeing, structures of the brainstem may be apparent. Do you remember what structures consistute the brain stem? It includes the pons, medulla oblongata, and spinal cord.
