Need help with biology questions!!!!?

1) Amy has lost her senses of sight, hearing and touch. Her symptoms are found to be caused by pressure applied to the brain by a tumor. Where is the tumor likely to be found?

cerebrum
amygdala
thalamus
medial forebrain bundle

2) Sensory information from the eyes is relayed to the primary visual cortex by the

thalamus
hypothalamus
pons
reticular formation

3) A gunshot wound in the back of the head would cause the victim to be permanently unable to maintain bodily coordination. The part of the brain that would be damaged is the

cerebellum
cerebrum
medulla
thalamus

Hi. the answer to:
1) I didn't find a lot on medial forebrain bundle, but I think it is thalmus. :)
2)is thalmus because the thalmus relays between the cerebellum and cerebrum. I found that on Wiki. :)
3) is cerebellum because it is located in teh back of your head, and it controls motor activities and balance. A good way to remember this is: cereBELLUM- BALence. That's how I do it!
