5 Matching questions

  1. cerebral cortex
  2. Wernicke's area
  3. sensory cortex
  4. association areas
  5. frontal lobes
  1. a 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)
  2. b the intricate fabric of interconnected neural cells covering the cerebral hemispheres; the body's ultimate control and information-processing center. (Myers Psychology for AP 1e p. 074)
  3. c area at the front of the parietal lobes that registers and processes body touch and movement sensations. (Myers Psychology for AP 1e p. 077)
  4. d 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)
  5. e portion of the cerebral cortex lying just behind the forehead; involved in speaking and muscle movements and in making plans and judgments. (Myers Psychology for AP 1e p. 074)

5 Multiple choice questions

  1. cells in the nervous system that support, nourish, and protect neurons. (Myers Psychology for AP 1e p. 074)
  2. controls language expression—an area, usually in the left frontal lobe, that directs the muscle movements involved in speech. (Myers Psychology for AP 1e p. 080)
  3. the base of the brainstem; controls heartbeat and breathing. (Myers Psychology for AP 1e p. 069)
  4. 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. a technique that uses magnetic fields and radio waves to produce computer-generated images of soft tissue. They scans show brain anatomy. (Myers Psychology for AP 1e p. 068)

5 True/False questions

  1. dual processingimpairment of language, usually caused by left hemisphere damage either to Broca's area (impairing speaking) or to Wernicke's area (impairing understanding). (Myers Psychology for AP 1e p. 080)

          

  2. aphasiaimpairment of language, usually caused by left hemisphere damage either to Broca's area (impairing speaking) or to Wernicke's area (impairing understanding). (Myers Psychology for AP 1e p. 080)

          

  3. cerebellumthe "little brain" at the rear of the brainstem; functions include processing sensory input and coordinating movement output and balance. (Myers Psychology for AP 1e p. 070)

          

  4. CT (computed tomography) scana visual display of brain activity that detects where a radioactive form of glucose goes while the brain performs a given task. (Myers Psychology for AP 1e p. 068)

          

  5. 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)
