Sheep Brain Anatomy Questions and Answers

  • 1. 

    What is the outer covering of the Sheep brain? 

    • A.

      Arachnoid Mater

    • B.

      Pia Mater

    • C.

      Medulla Oblongata

    • D.

      Dura Mater

    Correct Answer
    D. Dura Mater
    Explanation
    The correct answer is Dura Mater. The dura mater is the outermost layer of the meninges, which are the protective coverings of the brain and spinal cord. It is a tough and fibrous membrane that helps to protect the brain from injury and provides support to the delicate structures within.

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    Which amongst the following is the largest structure in dorsal view? 

    • A.

      Pons

    • B.

      Medulla Oblongata

    • C.

      Cerebral cortex

    • D.

      Hippocampus

    Correct Answer
    C. Cerebral cortex
    Explanation
    The cerebral cortex is the largest structure in the brain when viewed from the dorsal (top) perspective. It is responsible for many higher cognitive functions such as memory, attention, perception, and language. The pons, medulla oblongata, and hippocampus are also important structures in the brain, but they are relatively smaller in size compared to the cerebral cortex.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    What are the large folds that surround the cerebrum? 

    • A.

      Gyri

    • B.

      Sulci

    • C.

      Fissures

    • D.

      Colliculus

    Correct Answer
    A. Gyri
    Explanation
    Gyri are large folds that surround the cerebrum. These folds increase the surface area of the brain, allowing for more neurons and connections to be packed into a smaller space. The gyri play a crucial role in the processing and integration of information in the cerebrum.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    Which structure is caudal to the infundibulum?

    • A.

      Optic tracts

    • B.

      Infundibulum

    • C.

      Pyriform cortex

    • D.

      Medulla

    Correct Answer
    B. Infundibulum
    Explanation
    The mammillary bodies are caudal to the infundibulum. The infundibulum, a part of the brain that connects the hypothalamus to the pituitary gland, is located superiorly to the mammillary bodies, which are part of the diencephalon located near the posterior end of the hypothalamus.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    Which of the following separates the pyriform cortex from the temporal lobe?

    • A.

      Cerebral aqueduct

    • B.

      Ansate sulcus

    • C.

      Inferior colliculus

    • D.

       Rhinal fissure

    Correct Answer
    D.  Rhinal fissure
    Explanation
    The rhinal fissure is the correct answer because it is the structure that separates the pyriform cortex from the temporal lobe. The pyriform cortex is a part of the olfactory system and is involved in processing smell information. The temporal lobe, on the other hand, is responsible for various functions including memory, language, and emotion. The rhinal fissure acts as a boundary between these two structures, helping to separate and define their respective roles in brain function.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Which structure connects the left and right hemispheres?

    • A.

      Corpus callosum

    • B.

      Temporal lobe.

    • C.

      Arbor vitae

    • D.

      Ansate sulcus 

    Correct Answer
    A. Corpus callosum
    Explanation
    The corpus callosum is a structure in the brain that connects the left and right hemispheres. It is responsible for allowing communication and coordination between the two hemispheres, enabling them to work together efficiently. The other options, such as the temporal lobe, arbor vitae, and ansate sulcus, do not have the same function of dividing the hemispheres. Therefore, the correct answer is the corpus callosum.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    The dorsal surface of the medulla forms the floor of which structure? 

    • A.

      Spinal canal

    • B.

      Cerebral aqueduct

    • C.

      Fourth ventricle

    • D.

      Optic chiasma

    Correct Answer
    C. Fourth ventricle
    Explanation
    The dorsal surface of the medulla forms the floor of the fourth ventricle. The fourth ventricle is a fluid-filled cavity located in the hindbrain, between the pons and the cerebellum. It is responsible for the production and circulation of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF). The medulla, which is a part of the brainstem, is located just above the spinal cord and plays a crucial role in relaying signals between the brain and the spinal cord. Therefore, the correct answer is the fourth ventricle.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    Which structure is found lateral to the peduncles?

    • A.

       Pyriform cortex

    • B.

      Spinal canal

    • C.

      Mammillary bodies

    • D.

      Fourth ventricle

    Correct Answer
    A.  Pyriform cortex
    Explanation
    The pyriform cortex is found lateral to the peduncles.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    The deeper sulci are known as

    • A.

      Peduncles

    • B.

      Colliculus

    • C.

      Fissures

    • D.

      Gyri

    Correct Answer
    C. Fissures
    Explanation
    Fissures are deep grooves or furrows in the brain that separate different lobes and regions. They are responsible for dividing the brain into distinct functional areas. Unlike sulci, which are shallow grooves, fissures are deeper and more pronounced. Therefore, the correct answer is fissures.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    Which one of the following is a large round structure under the optic chiasma? 

    • A.

      Pineal gland

    • B.

       Pituitary gland

    • C.

      Medulla oblongata

    • D.

      Corpus callosum

    Correct Answer
    B.  Pituitary gland
    Explanation
    The pituitary gland is a large round structure located under the optic chiasma. It is an endocrine gland that plays a vital role in regulating various bodily functions and releasing hormones. The pineal gland is a small gland located in the brain, the medulla oblongata is a part of the brainstem, and the corpus callosum is a structure that connects the two hemispheres of the brain. Therefore, the pituitary gland is the correct answer.
