5 Matching questions

  1. aphasia
  2. motor cortex
  3. cerebellum
  4. forebrain
  5. thalamus
  1. a an area at the rear of the frontal lobes that controls voluntary movements
  2. b impairment of language, usually caused by left hemisphere damage either to Broca's area (impairing speaking) or to Wernicke's area (impairing understanding)
  3. c the "little brain" attached to the rear of the brainstem; it helps coordinate voluntary movement and balance
  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 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

5 Multiple choice questions

  1. railroad worker who survived a severe brain injury that dramatically changed his personality and behavior; case played a role in the development of the understanding of the localization of brain function
  2. the area at the front of the parietal lobes that registers and processes body touch and movement sensations
  3. cells in the nervous system that support, nourish, and protect neurons ("neural nannies")
  4. area of the parietal lobes that transforms visual representations into an auditory code
  5. 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. parietal lobesthe portion of the cerebral cortex lying at the top of the head and toward the rear; receives sensory input for touch and body position

          

  2. hemispheric lateralizationin the brain; hemispheric specialization

          

  3. EEGan amplified recording of the waves of electrical activity that sweep across the brain's surface

          

  4. Michael Gazzaniga and Roger Sperryarea of the parietal lobes that transforms visual representations into an auditory code

          

  5. lesionan amplified recording of the waves of electrical activity that sweep across the brain's surface
