5 Matching questions

  1. cerebellum
  2. CT (computed tomography) scan
  3. temporal lobes
  4. hypothalamus
  5. sensory cortex
  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 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)
  3. c 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)
  4. d portion of the cerebral cortex lying roughly above the ears; includes the auditory areas, each receiving information primarily from the opposite ear. (Myers Psychology for AP 1e p. 074)
  5. e 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 Multiple choice questions

  1. a visual display of brain activity that detects where a radioactive form of glucose goes while the brain performs a given task. (Myers Psychology for AP 1e p. 068)
  2. 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)
  3. portion of the cerebral cortex lying at the back of the head; includes areas that receive information from the visual fields. (Myers Psychology for AP 1e p. 074)
  4. tissue destruction. A naturally or experimentally caused destruction of brain tissue. (Myers Psychology for AP 1e p. 067)
  5. the brain's ability to change, especially during childhood, by reorganizing after damage or by building new pathways based on experience. (Myers Psychology for AP 1e p. 082)

  2. glial cells (glia)cells in the nervous system that support, nourish, and protect neurons. (Myers Psychology for AP 1e p. 074)

          

  3. frontal lobesportion 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)

          

  4. 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)

          

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