An Etymological Map of the Brain

The parts of the brain have many weird and wonderful names. But what do those names signify? I’ve made this Etymological Map of the Brain to illustrate the meaning behind the names of common cerebral structures.

If you enjoyed this post, please let me know and I’ll do another map covering the brain areas not shown on this one.

Sources: I adapted the brain image from here. Most of the etymology is from here.
