Medulla Oblongata

We just learned about the part of the brain called the pons.

Another part of the brain is called the medulla oblongata.

This part of the brain helps control your heart pumping, your body using up oxygen, and how you swallow, cough, sneeze or throwup.

(from: wikipedia - medulla oblongata)
