Transcript of Exterior Parts of the Brain

Morgan Brimhall & Max Mohr
Exterior Parts of the Brain
Temporal Lobes
Temporal Lobes are located above the ears. (Think temple) This lobe is responsible for object recognition, sound, and parts of long term memory. Temporal Lobes are the homes of speech but on the left side more so.
Frontal Lobes
This lobe is located at the front of the brain and is responsible for planning and thinking. It also contains the area of self-will, also known as personality, and controls the excesses of the emotional system. Your frontal lobe does not mature until adulthood. So, your partner in Mrs. Walker's class does not have a fully developed system for making judgement calls. If your frontal lobe is damaged it can cause severe or permanent changes in your behavior and personality.
Occipital Lobes
These lobes are located at the back of your head and are in charge of the visual processing.
Parietal Lobes
At the top of your brain, there is the Parietal Lobe. This lobe is important because it specializes with spatial recognition and calculation.
Motor Cortex
The Motor Cortex is two bands across the brain from ear to ear between the parietal and frontal lobe. This cortex controls body movement and works with the cerebellum to learn motor skills.
Somatosensory Cortex
This cortex, which is just behind the motor cortex and at the beginning of the parietal lobe, is responsible for processing touch signals.
