    Midbrain
    Also known as the mesencephalon, the midbrain is a portion of the nervous system largely responsible for vision, hearing, motor control, sleep/wake, alertness, and temperature regulation. It is located just below the cerebrum and above the hindbrain, connecting the two portions. As the central production center of dopamine, it plays a major role in human functions. It is also found to some degree in even the most rudimentary and ancient vertebrates. It is considered the uppermost section of the brain stem.

    Pons
    Names after the Latin word for "bridge" and located just below the midbrain along the brain stem, the pons acts as a communicator between the forebrain and the cerebellum. It also has primary functions associated with sleep, respiration, swallowing, bladder control, hearing, equilibrium, taste, eye movement, facial expressions, facial sensation, and posture. It also contains the area of the brain responsible for sleep paralysis, and scientists believe it could play an important part in the creation of dreams. It is easily recognizable as a broad bulge appearing near the top of the brain stem, just above the medulla. Its posterior side is distinguished by two stalk-like structures known as the cerebellar peduncles. As the pons is found in species of lamprey, it is speculated that it has been around in organisms for over 505 million years.
