1 THE BRAIN Notes

2 THE THREE PARTS OF A BRAIN  Forebrain-higher intellectual functions, such as speech and abstract thought. It controls the pain, hunger, thirst, blood pressure, body temp., and visceral functions. Contains the four lobes and all the cortices.  Midbrain-is the smallest region of the brain that acts as a sort of relay station for auditory and visual information  Hindbrain-Transmits signals between the spinal cord and the higher parts of the brain; it also controls autonomic functions such as heartbeat, respiration, balance and coordination.

3 THE FOUR LOBES  Occipital Lobe- is the visual processing center of the mammalian brain containing most of the anatomical region of the visual cortex.  Frontal Lobe- Emotional control and home of our personality, motor function, problem solving, spontaneity memory, language, judgement, impulse control, and social behaviors.

4 LOBES CONTINUED  Temporal lobe-is involved in primary auditory perception, such as hearing, and holds the primary auditory cortex.  Parietal lobe- It functions in processing sensory information regarding the location of parts of the body as well as interpreting tactile (touch) information and processing language and mathematics.

5 FIVE CORTICES OF THE BRAIN  Visual Cortex- in charge of processing visual information. Located in the occipital lobe.  Auditory Cortex-in charge of processing sound (hearing). Located in the temporal lobe.  Olfactory Cortex- in charge of processing smells. Located in the temporal lobe.  Somatosensory Cortex- in charge of your sense of touch (tactile). Located in the parietal lobe.  Motor Cortex- in charge of voluntary muscle movement. Located in the frontal lobe.
