K-1: The Senses
RED. The cerebrum is the largest part of the mammalian brain. It is responsible for thinking, learning, planning, remembering, language, feeling sensations, emotions, and voluntary, on-command muscle movement.
BLUE. The cerebellum sits at the back of the brainstem. It helps muscles work together to coordinate and learn movements, and to maintain balance and posture. It also has a role in the formation of memories.
YELLOW. The brainstem, which is connected to the spinal cord, controls automatic activities, such as heartbeat, digestion, breathing, swallowing, coughing and sneezing.
