MODULE 2 - INTRODUCTION
In Module 1 we dealt with the skull, the meninges, cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) and the surface anatomy of the brain. We went on to consider the complex internal anatomy of the cerebral hemisphere. In this second "survey" module we want to cover the rest of the central nervous system. After we finish this exercise we will be ready to start working with neural systems, and that will be more fun. The first part of this module covers the brainstem, and we finish by looking at the spinal cord. To keep things simple, we leave out the cerebellum. For that, look ahead to Module 6.
