5 Matching questions

  1. parietal lobes
  2. PET
  3. hippocampus
  4. frontal lobes
  5. occipital lobes
  1. a 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
  2. b a neural center located in the limbic system that helps process explicit memories for storage
  3. c a visual display of brain activity that detects where a radioactive form of glucose goes while the brain performs a given task
  4. d 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
  5. e 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 Multiple choice questions

  1. cells in the nervous system that support, nourish, and protect neurons ("neural nannies")
  2. the "little brain" attached to the rear of the brainstem; it helps coordinate voluntary movement and balance
  3. tissue destruction
  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. area of the parietal lobes that transforms visual representations into an auditory code

5 True/False questions

  1. brainstema 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. fMRIa 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. medullathe base of the brainstem; controls heartbeat and breathing

          

  4. 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

          

  5. forebraina 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)
