"The only true "one shot stop" means that the bullet strikes the PONS - located deep within the brain. Snipers are taught to engage the narrow band that basically represents the distance between your eyebrow to the tip of your nose which runs around your head like a ring. "Disruption" of the pons is like turning the light switch off."
"It may sound foreign to you, but the brain-stem can be found in the passage from a conglomerate of the mesencephalon, the pons and the medulla oblongata to the backbone, where the recessed area of the neck is. The mesencephalon is located between the cerebrum and the cerebellum. The pons is like a bridge. "
" its role as a requisite way-station for cerebral input to the cerebellum, the pons is like an air traffic hub, housing massive numbers of axons en route elsewhere, ... "
From "Medical Neurobiology" page 243
"Well, the pons takes care of this by connecting the two sides of the cerebellum, and then connecting each side of the cerebellum with the opposite side cerebral hemisphere. The pons also connects the cerebral cortex and the medulla. If you're thinking the pons is like a bridge, you'd be right, especially as pons means "bridge" in Latin."
"actually the role of pons is like a post man in the brain it takes the sensory information from different body parts and deliver it to cerebrum and cerebellum.But please note down when pons will be injured then you will also get other signs like loss of balance ,respiration failure or difficulty alongwith thought disturbance .If the patient is having only thought problem then only pons is not responsible.

METAMIA is a free database of analogy and metaphor. Anyone can contribute or search. The subject matter can be anything. Science is popular, but poetry is encouraged. The goal is to integrate our fluid muses with the stark literalism of a relational database. Metamia is like a girdle for your muses, a cognitive girdle.
