Human brain, medial view
There is a better view of the brainstem here. Also we can see the left lateral ventricle (the big cavity) because the septum pelucidum was removed. In the upper part of lateral ventricle a series of fringes corresponding to the transversally cut corpus callosum can be observed. Behind the brainstem there is the cerebellum. Some scientists consider the cerebellum like a computer that controls activities related to balance and motor skills, so that the rest of the brain can focus on conscience.
This is an image taken by the McNeil lab of a hippocampal growth cone exploring. Growth cones are the part of the neuron (from the axon which has to make connections) that grow outward to seek out other neurons and make connections/synapses. For more information, see this post.
