Brain parts and functions
Transcript of Brain parts and functions
Associated with thoughts and actions
Divided into four sections called lobes:
Temporal lobe Frontal lobe Location: Anterior part of Cerebrum
-STM (short term memory) Parietal lobe Location: Above occipital lobe/ behind frontal lobe
-Relating info from senses
-Solving math problems Enjoy a fun video about the brain with famous lectures singing!!! Temporal lobe Location: In front of occipital lobe/ under frontal lobe
-Organizing sensory input
-Language and speech productions
-Forming and associating memories
What are some structures of the limbic systems in this lobe?
-Hippocampus Occipital lobe Smallest of all lobe
Location:At the back of temporal lobe
-Recognize object shapes
-Visual processing Cerebellum Location: The bottom of the brain
similar to cerebrum, has 2 hemispheres and very folded surface
-Regulations and coordinates regulation
* Believe to be much older than cerebrum The limbic system Thalamus Location: Under cerebral cortex
-Take sensory info to and from cerebral cortex, to send to other systems Hypothalamus Location: Below thalamus/ above brain stem
-Control release 8 major hormones
-Hunger and thirst
-Circadian rhythm Time to quiz your understanding Please separate yourself with the others
You will be given 10 minutes
Good Luck! Info re-cap activity Review Amygdala Location: Deep within temporal lobe
-Store and classify emotional charged memories
-Trigger responses such as: sweaty palms, increase heart-rate, freezing and release of stress hormones Hippocampus Location: In temporal lobe/ adjacent to amydgala
-Stores LTM(long term memory)
-Forming new memories
-Connect senses to memories
-Convert STM to LTM Pons Location: Anterior to the cerebellum It's a transfer center for the two brain hemispheres.
Connect Cerebral cortex to Medulla oblongata
-Exchange of information between Cerebellum and Cerebrum
-Controlling involuntary functions Medulla oblongata Location: Interior to the ponds/ anterior to the cerebellum
-Relay station for nerve signals to and from the brain Websites used Find your partners and act! Sunny: Frontal lobe
Hongda: Decisions making Act out: STM
Sunny: Can I have your number?
Alice: It's 416-xxx-xxxx
Hongda: Mine is 416-xxx-xxxx
Sunny: Oh, what was your number Alice? You have around 10 minutes to review the materials You can also check:
