Brain. Computer-coloured illustration of a human head in side view, sectioned to show the brain and its blood vessels. The face is at right; cavities (red) of the nose, mouth and pharynx are seen. Cerebral blood vessels (blue red) branch deep within the brain; cerebral tissue of the brain (white) is visible. The large cerebrum of the brain is responsible for memory, conscious thought and voluntary muscle movement. It is protected within the cranium bones of the skull. Square bones of the neck vertebrae are also depicted. Illustration drawn by the Italian anatomist Paolo Mascagni (1755-1815), author of the famous treatise 'Vasorum Lymphaticorum Corporis Humani'.
