- reticular formation
- temporal lobes
- CT scan
- a a series of x-ray photographs taken from different angles and combined by computer into a composite representation of a slice through the body.
- 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
- c the "little brain" attached to the rear of the brainstem; its functions include processing sensory input and coordinating movement output and balance
- d 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
- e a nerve network in the brainstem that plays an important role in controlling arousal.
5 Multiple choice questions
- tissue destruction. A brain lesion is a naturally or experimentally caused destruction of brain tissue
- controls language expression-an aread of the frontal, usually in the left hemisphere, that directs the muscle movements involved in speech
- limbic system component that regulates hunger, body temperature and other functions
- 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
PET scan → a series of x-ray photographs taken from different angles and combined by computer into a composite representation of a slice through the body.
brainstem → a technique that enables us to see static images of the brain's structures; uses magnetism to achieve this effect
cerebral cortex → the area at the front of the parietal lobes that registers and processes body touch and movement sensations
association areas → 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
amygdala → the inner part of an organ or structure in plant or animal
