But how much do you know about the parts of the brain? Specifically, how much do you know about that vital connection between the brain and spinal cord - the brainstem?

And what happens when different parts of the brainstem are damaged? Take a deep breath, thank your brainstem for helping you do that, and prepare for these quizzes on the brainstem.
