Corpus Collasum
  • Largest connective pathway in a human brain. It is made of more than 200 million nerve fibers that connect the left and right sides (hemispheres) of the brain. Nodcc.org (2006)
  • Found in the center and middle of the brain
  • Allows for the two hemispheres to communicate between each other.
  • One hemisphere of the brain controls motor movement and the other controls feeling. Therefore, to operate accordingly to conduct a movement or process a bundle of complicated information, the two hemispheres need to be able to communicate between each other. Nodcc.org (2006).
