5 True/False questions
Wernickes area → Fluent aphasias - able to produce recognisable speech but do not understand what is said to them. Found in a region of the brain that borders on the auditory projection area.
CNS → positioned above medulla and controls timing of sleep and dreams + attentiveness
frontal lobes = working memory → initiating modulating and planning behaviour, strategic thinking and problem solving
temporal lobes → memory (more than a few seconds), knowledge, face storage, medial surface (long term events/places)
The individual brain → sits on top of hindbrain - coordinates movement and relays information from senses.
