Cerebellum
Function:
Bottom rear of brain
Coordinates muscle movement
Cerebellum
Marabellum
Superpower:
Gives you superbalance

Miss. Thalamus
Hypothalamus

Endocrine system
Corpus Collosum
Function:
The band of nerve cells that connects the two hemispheres

Occipital Lobe
Function:
The cortical regions at the back of the brain housing the visual cortex.
Temporal Lobe
Function:
Cortical lobes that process sounds, including speech.
May be involved in long-term memory
Parietal Lobe
Function:
Cortical areas lying toward the back and top of the brain;
Involved in touch sensation and in perceiving spatial relationships
Frontal Lobe
Function:
Cortical regions at the front of the brain that are especially involved in movement and

in thinking
Primary Motor Cortex
Function:
A narrow vertical strip of cortex in the frontal lobes
Lies just in front of the central tissue
Controls voluntary movement
Primary Somatosensory Cortex
Function:
A strip of the parietal lobe lying just behind the central fissure.
Involved with sensations of touch
Left Hemisphere
Function:
Spontaneous speaking and writing
Responses to complex commands
Word recognition
Memory for words and numbers
Sequences of movements
Feelings of anxiety
Positive emotion
Right Hemisphere
Function:
Repetitive but not spontaneous speaking
Responses to simple commands
Facial recognition
Memory for shapes and music
Spatial interpretation
Emotional responsiveness
Negative emotion
