     This is a similar view, in which the spinal cord has been cut off, and a great many labels added. Blumenfeld's Figure 12.2 B is similar, but does not include the cerebral hemisphere. See Figure 2.1 for the color code.
      You are about to be confronted with the names for a great many structures, without being told much about the function of these structures. For the moment we have two goals: 1) we want you to begin to relate a name to a structure, so that when we do take up functional issues you will at least have an idea of where the structures are in the brainstem and 2) we want you to begin making the transition from surface view of the brainstem to cross sections through the same region.
