- a visual display of brain activity that detects where a radioactive form of glucose goes while the brain performs a given task
- 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.
- 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
- a nerve network in the brainstem that plays an important role in controlling arousal.
5 True/False questions
frontal lobes → 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
limbic system → the part of the brain continuous with the spinal cord and comprising the medulla oblongata and pons and midbrain and parts of the hypothalamus
temporal lobes → 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
motor cortex → the area at the front of the parietal lobes that registers and processes body touch and movement sensations
cerebellum → the "little brain" attached to the rear of the brainstem; its functions include processing sensory input and coordinating movement output and balance
