  1. a a series of X-ray photographs taken from different angles and combined by computer into a composite representation of a slice through the body. Also called CAT scan. (Myers Psychology for AP 1e p. 068)
  2. b a condition resulting from surgery that isolates the brain's two hemispheres by cutting the fibers (mainly those of the corpus callosum) connecting them. (Myers Psychology for AP 1e p. 084)
  3. c areas of the cerebral cortex that are not involved in primary motor or sensory functions; rather, they are involved in higher mental functions such as learning, remembering, thinking, and speaking. (Myers Psychology for AP 1e p. 078)
  4. d controls language reception—a brain area involved in language comprehension and expression; usually in the left temporal lobe. (Myers Psychology for AP 1e p. 080)
  5. e portion of the cerebral cortex lying roughly above the ears; includes the auditory areas, each receiving information primarily from the opposite ear. (Myers Psychology for AP 1e p. 074)

5 Multiple choice questions

  1. the formation of new neurons. (Myers Psychology for AP 1e p. 083)

  3. frontal lobesportion 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)

          

  4. electroencephalogram (EEG)portion of the cerebral cortex lying roughly above the ears; includes the auditory areas, each receiving information primarily from the opposite ear. (Myers Psychology for AP 1e p. 074)
