The microelectrode consists of a sharptipped, glass capillary tube filled with conducting solution. Upon penetration of the neuron, the potential at the tip of the electrode becomes electrically negative in relation to the outside of the electrode. The value of this negative charge is usually between ±60 and ±75 mV. e. when it is not generating a nerve impulse), and for this reason it is called the resting potential. The resting potential is maintained by the sodium±potassium pump, which steadily discharges more positive charge from the cell than it allows in, and by the properties of potassium ions, which leak out of the cell through its membrane channels faster than sodium ions leak in.

The thalamus is the major relay centre for all sensations except smell. The hypothalamus controls sex drive, pleasure, pain, hunger, thirst, blood pressure, body temperature, and other functions. The hypothalamus also influences the pituitary, which plays a major part in regulating the functions of endocrine glands, part of the system that releases hormones into the bloodstream and regulates such processes as metabolism, growth, and development. The diencephalon also interconnects with the limbic system, which plays an important role in emotion and memory and in regulating basic body functions.

The roof plate of the midbrain is formed by two paired, rounded swellings, the superior and inferior colliculi. The superior colliculus receives input from the retina and the visual THE BRAIN: A GUIDED TOUR 23 cortex and participates in a variety of visual reflexes, particularly the tracking of objects. The inferior colliculus receives auditory fibres and connects with the auditory relay nucleus of the thalamus. Reticular Activating System (RAS) Within the brainstem lies a mass of nerve cells and fibres called the reticular formation.
