5 Matching questions

  1. sensory cortex
  2. neurogenesis
  3. split brain
  4. association areas
  5. aphasia
  1. a area at the front of the parietal lobes that registers and processes body touch and movement sensations. (Myers Psychology for AP 1e p. 077)
  2. b areas 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)
  3. c the formation of new neurons. (Myers Psychology for AP 1e p. 083)
  4. d impairment of language, usually caused by left hemisphere damage either to Broca's area (impairing speaking) or to Wernicke's area (impairing understanding). (Myers Psychology for AP 1e p. 080)
  5. e a condition resulting from surgery that isolates the brain's two hemispheres by cutting the fibers (mainly those of the corpus callosum) connecting them. (Myers Psychology for AP 1e p. 084)

5 Multiple choice questions

  1. 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)
  2. a neural structure lying below (hypo) the thalamus; it directs several maintenance activities (eating, drinking, body temperature), helps govern the endocrine system via the pituitary gland, and is linked to emotion and reward. (Myers Psychology for AP 1e p. 072)
  3. controls language expression—an area, usually in the left frontal lobe, that directs the muscle movements involved in speech. (Myers Psychology for AP 1e p. 080)
  4. the "little brain" at the rear of the brainstem; functions include processing sensory input and coordinating movement output and balance. (Myers Psychology for AP 1e p. 070)
  5. portion of the cerebral cortex lying just behind the forehead; involved in speaking and muscle movements and in making plans and judgments. (Myers Psychology for AP 1e p. 074)

5 True/False questions

  1. brainstemdoughnut-shaped neural system (including the hippocampus, amygdala, and hypothalamus) located below the cerebral hemispheres; associated with emotions and drives. (Myers Psychology for AP 1e p. 071)

          

  2. consciousnessthe formation of new neurons. (Myers Psychology for AP 1e p. 083)

          

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

          

  4. motor cortexan area at the rear of the frontal lobes that controls voluntary movements. (Myers Psychology for AP 1e p. 075)

          

  5. corpus callosumthe "little brain" at the rear of the brainstem; functions include processing sensory input and coordinating movement output and balance. (Myers Psychology for AP 1e p. 070)
