The Brain! IIA-3.1 Identify the structure and function of the major regions of the brain. IIA-3.2 Recognize that specific functions are centered in specific.
The Cerebral Cortex is split into four LOBES, with half of each one on the left, and half of each one on the right: The FRONTAL LOBE The PARIETAL LOBE.
The cerebrum or cortex is the largest part of the human brain, associated with higher brain function such as thought and action. The cerebrum controls.
