Diencephalon

This is part of human brain structure. It is located right in the middle of the brain. My new semester will start with neurology,that is the study of the brain and nerves.

This is part of human brain structure. It is located right in the middle of the brain. My new semester will start with neurology,that is the study of the brain and nerves.

It is tough to master the structure of the brain. When I was first introduced to the neuroanatomy back in Semester 4 [almost 2 years ago], it took me weeks to understand the whole structure and function. You have to view the whole structure in 3D and able to imagine the impact of any damage/lesion to any part of the brain.

Why put the title as diencephalon? Learning about brain and its related structure will introduce to lots of new [sometimes hard to pronounce and decipher] medical jargon.

If you see any medical students who are studying neuroanatomy [the anatomy of the nervous system], you might able to hear them talking in a foreign language ;)
