- right hemisphere
- Limbic System
- Left Hemisphere
- Cerebral Cortex
- a The outermost layer of the cerebral hemisphere which is composed of gray matter. Cortices are asymmetrical. Both hemispheres are able to analyze sensory data, perform memory functions, learn new information, form thoughts and make decisions.
- b Sequential Analysis: systematic, logical interpretation of information. Interpretation and production of symbolic information:language, mathematics, abstraction and reasoning. Memory stored in a language format.
- c Holistic Functioning: processing multi-sensory input simultaneously to provide "holistic" picture of one's environment. Visual spatial skills. Holistic functions such as dancing and gymnastics are coordinated by the right hemisphere. Memory is stored in auditory, visual and spatial modalities.
- d olfactory path ways, biologic rhythms, hypothalamus
- e relays information between the cerebrum and the cerebellum, controls arousal and regulates respiration
5 Multiple choice questions
- communication between the two hemispheres
- relays messages between lower brain centers and cerebral cortex
- controls heartbeat and breathing
- controls maintenance functions such as eating; helps govern endocrine system; linked to emotion and reward
- neural centers in the limbic system linked to emotion
5 True/False questions
Temporal Lobe → Auditory reception and interpretation, expressed behavior, receptive speech, information retrieval
hippocampus → relays messages between lower brain centers and cerebral cortex
pituitary gland → master endocrine gland
Basal Ganglia → neural centers in the limbic system linked to emotion
Parietal Lobe → Cognition and memory. Prefrontal area: The ability to concentrate and attend, elaboration of thought. The "Gatekeeper"; (judgment, inhibition). Personality and emotional traits. Motor Cortex (Brodman's): voluntary motor activity. Premotor Cortex: storage of motor patterns and voluntary activities. Language: motor speech
