Are there any easy mnemonics to memorize the parts of the brain?

1) Broca’s Area (association cortex for producing speech).

2) Cerebellum

3) Cerebral Cortex (decision making upper brain).

4) Corpus Callosum (connects the two hemispheres).

5) Frontal Lobe (most advanced and complex thinking).

6) Hippocampus (important for memory).

7) Hypothalamus (regulates biological drives).

8) Ventromedial & Lateral Hypothalamus (two parts of the hypothalamus that regulate hunger: ventromedial suppresses hunger, lateral stimulates hunger) 

9) Limbic System (associated with emotions such as fear and aggression)

10) Motor Cortex

11) Occipital Lobe (visual cortex)

12) Parasympathetic Nervous System.

13) Sympathetic Nervous System.

14) Temporal Lobe (auditory cortex).
