My very own brain

This, to the left, is my brain. As in, the one in my head - the one I use every second of every day. Cool.

For those of you with no neuro background, let's name some structures.

1 Cerebellum
2 Medulla oblongata
3 Pons
4 Pituitary (right above the point of the 4)
5 Cortex
6 Splenium
7 Fornix
8 Septum pellucidum
9 Corpus callosum
10 Meninges: dura, arachnoid, pia

For the record, I have a normal brain for someone my age. The funny dark patch on the top of my head is cerebral spinal fluid (CSF), which is visible because the interhemispheric fissure was not fully perpendicular.
