5 Matching questions

  1. fissures
  2. frontal lobes
  3. glial cells
  4. split brains
  5. Wernicke's area
  1. a 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
  2. b controls language reception-a brain area involved in language comprehension and expression;usually in the left temporal lobe
  3. c cells in the nervous system that support, nourish, and protect neurons ("neural nannies")
  4. d the visible folds of the cerebral cortex
  5. e condition resulting from surgery isolating brain's two hemispheres by cutting fibers connecting them

5 Multiple choice questions

  1. impairment of language, usually caused by left hemisphere damage either to Broca's area (impairing speaking) or to Wernicke's area (impairing understanding)
  2. the "little brain" attached to the rear of the brainstem; it helps coordinate voluntary movement and balance
  3. 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
  4. controls language expression-an area of the frontal, usually in the left hemisphere, that directs the muscle movements involved in speech
  5. 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

5 True/False questions

  1. medullatwo almond-shaped neural clusters that are components of the limbic system and are linked to emotion (especially aggression and fear)

          

  2. temporal 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

          

  3. 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

          

  4. hemispheric lateralizationin the brain; hemispheric specialization

          

  5. Michael Gazzaniga and Roger Sperryareas 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
