Randolph High Brain Project
Transcript of Randolph High Brain Project
By Kenny Swain, Monique Whitfield, Patrick Morrissey, William Hayes
The brain can be represented as many different things, such as a school.
The beginning of the brain, the Frontal Lobe causes movement throughout the body, and speech,
The Frontal Lobe
Occitipal lobes is involved in recieving information in visual fields .
The Occipital lobes allow artists to visualize and put their ideas into action onto a canvas
A composer in a high school band
deals only with sounds, making he or she
a person who deals primarily with audiotory messages
The temporal lobes are involved in receiving information from auditory areas
The parietal lobe recieves sensory input for touch and body position
The Parietal Lobe
The gym is a place where touch and body position is put into action during physical activity. The parietal lobe enables you to move, and helps with coordination
The cerebral cortex is a thin surface layer of interconnected neural cells.
"The thinking crown" , The body's ultimate control and information processing center
The library is the information processing center for the school
The wall is the thin surface of the library.
The thalamus is Brain's sensory switchboard that directs messages to the receiving areas in the cortex and transmits messages to cerebellum and medulla
The Hypothalamus directs several maintenance activities. It also helps govern the endocrine system.
The hypothalamus is responsible for the maintenance of activities, there is a maintenance office in the school, overseeing activities and cleanup within the school
The Auditory Cortex is the section of the brain that processes information received through hearing.
The Auditory Cortex
The part of the cerebral cortex that receives and processes sensory nerve impulses from the eyes.
The Visual Cortex
The visual cortex enables the administration to watch movements within the hallways and classrooms.
The soundboard in the auditorium is similar to an auditory cortex because it changes how low or high certain frequencies are heard throughout the room.
The corpus callosum coordinates and connects the left and right hemisphere of the brain.
The brainstem coordinates motor control signals sent from the brain to the body.
This hallway serves as a connection between the Athletic side of the school and the academic half of Randolph High
The administrative office sends messages through the intercoms, while the brain stem controls signals being sent from brain to body. Brain(office) Body(students)
The Amygdala is a structure in the limbic system linked to emotion and memory. It decides where and how memories are stored in the brain
The amygdala is linked to emotion. The guidance office is composed of people specialized in helping keep emotions under control.
Controls autonomic functions such as breathing, heartbeat, digestion and swallowing
The right hemisphere controls the left side of the body, and is responsible for spatial abilities, face recogniton, visual imagery, and music. It's associated with more creative, abstract thinking.
The venting and plumbing systems of the school are similar to the medulla, because they control vital involuntary functions of the school.
The using visual imagery and spatial abilities, the right hemisphere enables this boy to play the clarinet
The left hemisphere's primary function is controlling language, logic, and math skills. It's associated with more logical, concrete thinking.
Primary Motor Cortex
Primary Sensory Cortex
The Limbic System
Located below the cerebral hemispheres, associated with emotions and drives.
The auditorium is a place that you have to incorporate how many people are there, speak properly and use logic during your speech.
The primary Motor cortex is an area at the rear of the frontal lobe that controls voluntary movement
In a gym class, students engage their Primary Motor Cortex through physical activity
The primary sensory cortex is involved in processing information relating to touch.
The Cerebellums function is to coordinate and regulate muscular activity.
The Angular Gyrus, located in the Parietal Lobe, helps process language, numbers and memory retrieval.
Your sensory cortex, enables you to understand that you are handing a teacher an apple for example.
This light system is similar to a thalamus, because it controls and directs visual effects, that can be used to help conduct a play.
A part of the brain that has to do with language comprehension. It's located in the temporal lobes. Damage to this area can cause Wernick's aphasia.
The Broca's Area is a region of the brain that handles speech production.
On the football field, coordination is everything, if you have no coordination, you can be taken down and injured
The Association Area helps plan movements in the body, along with controlling personality, the control of emotions and expression in behavior.
A brain fissure that separates the frontal and parietal lobes.
English class is similar to Wernicke's area, because English class teaches you how to develop language understanding
In a classroom, you must use your memory and apply it to what you are learning, whether linguistics or mathematical skills
In hallways when you craft a wonderful relationship wether professional or romantic, your limbic system controls how you feel
In school, the main form of communication is speech, and the Broca's area controls that.
The hallways are how people can move it is where people can express their emotions and display their personality.
A wall in between the main office and the gym, dividing the parateil which controls sensory touch and the frontal which sends messages.
A major endocrine gland that is important in controlling growth and development and the functioning of the other endocrine glands.
A part of the brainstem that links the medulla oblongata and the thalamus.
The Reticular Formation is involved in multiple tasks such as regulating the sleep-wake cycle and filtering incoming stimuli to discriminate irrelevant background stimuli.
The lights in the classroom act as a sleep wake cycle, when they are off, they reduce students level of stimuation.
A school hallway is similar to pons, because it links different hallways, classrooms and sections of the school.
The cafe helps in developing students growth, with social interaction as well as food.
The administrative office sends messages, which cause movement or speech.
