5 Matching questions

  1. brainstem
  2. thalamus
  3. Wernicke's area
  4. cognitive neuroscience
  5. parietal lobes
  1. a controls language reception—a brain area involved in language comprehension and expression; usually in the left temporal lobe. (Myers Psychology for AP 1e p. 080)
  2. b the interdisciplinary study of the brain activity linked with cognition (including perception, thinking, memory, and language). (Myers Psychology for AP 1e pp. 007, 089)
  3. c the oldest part and central core of the brain, beginning where the spinal cord swells as it enters the skull; It is responsible for automatic survival functions. (Myers Psychology for AP 1e p. 069)
  4. d 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. (Myers Psychology for AP 1e p. 070)
  5. e portion of the cerebral cortex lying at the top of the head and toward the rear; receives sensory input for touch and body position. (Myers Psychology for AP 1e p. 074)

  3. a series of X-ray photographs taken from different angles and combined by computer into a composite representation of a slice through the body. Also called CAT scan. (Myers Psychology for AP 1e p. 068)

  5. the base of the brainstem; controls heartbeat and breathing. (Myers Psychology for AP 1e p. 069)

5 True/False questions

  3. association areasareas of the cerebral cortex that are not involved in primary motor or sensory functions; rather, they are involved in higher mental functions such as learning, remembering, thinking, and speaking. (Myers Psychology for AP 1e p. 078)

          

  4. lesiontissue destruction. A naturally or experimentally caused destruction of brain tissue. (Myers Psychology for AP 1e p. 067)
