5 Written questions

5 Matching questions

  1. sensory cortex
  2. angular gyrus
  3. limbic system
  4. temporal lobes
  5. cerebral cortex
  1. a the area at the front of the parietal lobes that registers and processes body touch and movement sensations
  2. b the portion of the cerebral cortex lying roughly above the ears; includes the auditory areas, each of which receives auditory information primarily from the opposite ear
  3. c area of the parietal lobes that transforms visual representations into an auditory code
  4. d neural system (including the hippocampus, amygdala, and hypothalamus) located below the cerebral hemispheres; associated with emotions and drives
  5. e the intricate fabric of interconnected neural cells that covers the cerebral hemispheres; the body's ultimate control and information-processing center

5 Multiple choice questions

  1. tissue destruction
  2. railroad worker who survived a severe brain injury that dramatically changed his personality and behavior; case played a role in the development of the understanding of the localization of brain function
  3. an area at the rear of the frontal lobes that controls voluntary movements
  4. 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
  5. a nerve network in the brainstem that plays an important role in controlling arousal (alertness)

5 True/False questions

  1. hindbrainlargest, most complicated, and most advanced of the three divisions of the brain; comprises the thalamus, hypothalamus, limbic system, basal ganglia, corpus callosum, and cortex


  2. parietal lobesthe portion of the cerebral cortex lying at the top of the head and toward the rear; receives sensory input for touch and body position


  3. plasticitythe brain's capacity for modification, as evident in brain reorganization following damage (especially in children) and in experiments on the effects of experience on brain development


  4. glial cellsthe brain's sensory switchboard, located on top of the brainstem; it directs messages to the sensory receiving areas in the cortex and transmits replies to the cerebellum and medulla


  5. hemispheric lateralizationin the brain; hemispheric specialization
