  1. association areas
  2. temporal lobes
  3. frontal lobes
  4. lesion
  5. motor cortex
  1. a an area at the rear of the frontal lobes that controls voluntary movements
  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 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
  4. d tissue destruction
  5. e 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 Multiple choice questions

  1. area of the parietal lobes that transforms visual representations into an auditory code
  2. the "little brain" attached to the rear of the brainstem; it helps coordinate voluntary movement and balance
  3. the large band of neural fibers connecting the two brain hemispheres and carrying messages between them
  4. 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

5 True/False questions

  1. hindbraina 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)


  2. MRIa 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. sensory cortexan area at the rear of the frontal lobes that controls voluntary movements


  4. limbic systemthe oldest part and central core of the brain, beginning where the spinal cord swells as it enters the skull; the brainstem is responsible for automatic survival functions


  5. Michael Gazzaniga and Roger Sperrypsychologists; split brains in mice/rats/cats and showed that they weren't affected; later conducted split brain research on humans
