  4. fissures
  5. MRI
  1. a the portion of the cerebral cortex lying at the top of the head and toward the rear; receives sensory input for touch and body position
  2. b a technique that uses magnetic fields and radio waves to produce computer-generated images that distinguish among different types of soft tissue; allows us to see structures within the brain
  3. c two almond-shaped neural clusters that are components of the limbic system and are linked to emotion (especially aggression and fear)
  4. d the visible folds of the cerebral cortex
  5. e a part of the brain located at the rear base of the skull that is involved in the basic processes of life (also known as the lower brain or reptilian brain)

  3. in the brain; hemispheric specialization
  4. the area at the front of the parietal lobes that registers and processes body touch and movement sensations
  5. the 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

5 True/False questions

  1. corpus callosumthe large band of neural fibers connecting the two brain hemispheres and carrying messages between them


  2. temporal lobesthe 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. lesiontissue destruction


  4. angular gyrusarea of the parietal lobes that transforms visual representations into an auditory code


  5. occipital lobesthe portion of the cerebral cortex lying at the back of the head; includes the visual areas, which receive visual information from the opposite visual field
