5 Matching questions

  1. frontal lobes
  2. MRI
  3. occipital lobes
  4. cerebral cortex
  5. temporal lobes
  1. a 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
  2. b the portion of the cerebral cortex lying just behind the forehead; involved in speaking and muscle movements and in making plans and judgements, as well as personality
  3. c 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
  4. d the 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
  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. largest, 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. two almond-shaped neural clusters that are components of the limbic system and are linked to emotion (especially aggression and fear)
  3. neural system (including the hippocampus, amygdala, and hypothalamus) located below the cerebral hemispheres; associated with emotions and drives
  4. the 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. 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

5 True/False questions

  1. hemispheric lateralizationin the brain; hemispheric specialization

          

  2. glial cellsthe visible folds of the cerebral cortex

          

  3. Broca's areacontrols language reception-a brain area involved in language comprehension and expression;usually in the left temporal lobe

          

  4. lesiontissue destruction

          

  5. motor cortexan area at the rear of the frontal lobes that controls voluntary movements
