The Human Brain
Parietal Lobe
Frontal Lobe
A Prezi by Daniel Kim, Hanna Park, Stephen Tan, Judith Yan
“The human brain must continue to frame the problems for the electronic machine to solve.”
- David Sarnof
Older Structures
Limbic System
Reticular Formation
A Walk
Through the Brain

Cerebellum
“Little brain”
Has to do with:
Coordination
Balance
Posture
Emotional control
Language & learning
Impaired by: alcohol "drunk test"
Hypothalamus
Regulates: life support operation
ex. endocrine system, hunger, thirst, body temp., motivation, sex, emotion, aggression, etc.

Hippocampus
Regulates emotion
Associates short term & explicit memory
Left side: verbal
Right side: visual

Amygdala
Neural clusters; in temporal region
Linked to emotion
Memory processing
Examples when damaged:
Face expression recognition
Over-activity = oversensitivity
Shyness
Occipital Lobe
At the back of brain
Contains the visual cortex
Temporal Lobe
above ears
auditory cortex
receives input from opposite auditory fields
Processes meaning of speech and images
Brainy Quote
Cerebral Cortex
What do we see?
What about
people with
split brains?
Wernicke's Area
Comprehension of speech
(in contrast with Broca's)
*Disorder: Wernicke's Aphasia
Thalamus
Part of the brain stem
“Inner room”
“Sensory switchboard”
Relay station
Receives/ passes on afferent messages to cerebellum and medulla
EXAMPLE: Side effects
Supports:
emotion, behavior, motivation, long term memory, olfactory senses
CENTRAL NEROUS SYSTEM
Neural Networks
neuron and its synapses
can strengthen the connections through continuous use
EX) language

Spinal Cord
reflexes
receives sensory neurons
activates motor neuron
EX) knee jerk, candle

above the brain stem
controls arousal
Giuseppe Moruzzi & Horace Magoun
stimulation in the cat’s reticular formation

Spinal Cord (2)
-Located right behind our forehead
functions speech, information processing, muscle movement, and making plans and judgement.




Brainstem
MIDBRAIN
controls auditory, visual, motor systems
substantia nigra & red nucleus
body movement
substantia nigra
dopamine producing area
Parkinson’s disease
PONS
coordinates movements
MEDULLA
controls heartbeat and breathing

Motor cortex & Sensory Cortex
Broca's Area
Prefrontal cortex
Abstract thinking
Regulating behavior
Short and long term decision making
Strategic planning
PERIPHERAL NERVOUS SYSTEM
Autonomic Nervous System
controls internal organs' muscles
sympathetic
spends energy in stressful situations
parasympathetic
keeps energy
Somatic Nervous System
controls the body’s skeletal muscles

Motor & Sensory cortex
Brain Song!
Spinal Cord (1)
Broca's Area
-Region of frontal lobe that deals with speech production.

-Damage to this region can cause Broca Aphasia.

Perceiving and processing somatosensory events:

Touch
Temperature
Body Position
Pain

Integrates motor and sensory functions
