  2. b an amplified recording of the waves of electrical activity that sweep across the brain's surface
  3. c a neural center located in the limbic system that helps process explicit memories for storage
  4. d largest, most complicated, and most advanced of the three divisions of the brain; comprises the thalamus, hypothalamus, limbic system, basal ganglia, corpus callosum, and cortex
  5. e the portion of the cerebral cortex lying roughly above the ears; includes the auditory areas, each of which receives auditory information primarily from the opposite ear

5 True/False questions

  1. Broca's areacontrols language expression-an area of the frontal, usually in the left hemisphere, that directs the muscle movements involved in speech


  2. glial cellscells in the nervous system that support, nourish, and protect neurons ("neural nannies")


  3. thalamusthe visible folds of the cerebral cortex


  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


  5. cerebral cortexthe area at the front of the parietal lobes that registers and processes body touch and movement sensations
