Temporal lobe damage. Can speak clearly, but it is not understandable. Lost auditory vocabulary and meaning of words.
Perception of Movement
Disappears from sight while moving, but can be seen when stopped.
Perception of Color and Brightness
We can see same colors through any filter (like sunglasses or tinted windows).
Can see things, but things aren't recognizable.
Inability to recognize familiar human faces and self. Temporal lobe lesion (damage) and affects memory.
Senses of body. Primary somatosensory cortex.
Distorted, but represents sensitivity of parts of the body to touch.
Occurs with people with amputations or nerve damage. Feels like pain is still in the area, even though limb is gone. Neurons that processed that area still survive, but neighboring regions start to spread and take over.
Perception of any sensory stimulus on the left side of the patient is ignored (right parietal lobe damage).
Largest lobe. Primary motor cortex. Left frontal lobe=speech production.
Dexterity (how likely you are to exert control over that part) of portion of body.
Parts of Brain that aid in Movement
Striatum, Cerebellum, Motor Cortex
Speech production. Changing sounds into words.
Damage to Broca's. Difficult to get words out; "telegraphic" speech. Only content words.
Iron from gun backfired and went through his cheek and out of his skull. Couldn't relate to people well; temperament changes. That part of frontal lobe is involved in memory function, executive function, and inhibition of limbic system.
Brain damage in one certain area, but quickly spreads and can spread to other side of brain. Can see images on right visual field because that side is controlled by left side of brain, but not opposite (not connected).
