  2. sensory cortex
  3. brainstem
  4. parietal lobes
  5. Broca's area
  1. a portion of the cerebral cortex lying at the top of the head and toward the rear; receives sensory input for touch and body position. (Myers Psychology for AP 1e p. 074)
  2. b the oldest part and central core of the brain, beginning where the spinal cord swells as it enters the skull; It is responsible for automatic survival functions. (Myers Psychology for AP 1e p. 069)
  3. c the principle that information is often simultaneously processed on separate conscious and unconscious tracks. (Myers Psychology for AP 1e p. 090)
  4. d area at the front of the parietal lobes that registers and processes body touch and movement sensations. (Myers Psychology for AP 1e p. 077)
