Cardiac Physiology

I will do the promised post on cardiac physiology, starting with how blood moves through the heart and how the valves operate, but every time I think about the nervous control of the heart (originating with the medulla oblongata just superior to the brain stem which regulates the cardiac control centers and the involvement of the autonomic nervous system) I can't help but think about that episode of Pinky and The Brain where they sing about parts of the brain.

And because I'm awesome, look what I found. While I'm putting together another post for you, enjoy a small piece of my childhood.
