- Cerebral Cortex
- frontal lobes
- Broca's area
- Occipital lobe: damage
- a non fluent aphasias - typically involves lesions in a region of the left frontal lobe. Indiviual able to comprehend speech but unable to produce recognisable speech.
- b Phineas Gage case - iron rod through skull = lesion to pre-frontal cortex - resulted in personality changes, profrane behaviour and inability to plan
- c cortical colour blindness, disorders of movement perception ie: see world in snapshots
- d position emission tomography. Injected with radioactive sugar. Active brain cells soak up the sugar = image similar to CAT and MRI.
- e Outer grey layer of cerebral hemispheres
5 Multiple choice questions
- brain - hindbrain, midbrain, forebrain and spinal cord
- receiving stations for information arriving from ears, eyes and other sense organs.
- Embedded within temporal lobe and plays a key role in long term memory and emotion
- disruption in production or comprehension of speech.
- biological psychology / behavioural neuroscience
5 True/False questions
Occipital lobe → primary visual cortex - experience of consciously seeing
brain → sits on top of hindbrain - coordinates movement and relays information from senses.
Unilateral neglect → caused by damage to the parietal lobes. Damage to the right parietal lobe = neglect to left handside of world ie: forget to brush left side of hair
cerebellum → fine motor control (largest part of hindbrain)
Brain floats in fluid → acts as a shock absorber
