- wenicke's area
- occipital lobes
- motor cortex
- frontal lobes
- a the portion of the cerebral cortex lying at the back of the head; includes the visual areas, which receive visual information from the opposite visual field.
- b an area at the rear of the frontal lobes that controls voluntary movements
- c controls language reception—a brain area involved in language comprehension and expression; usually in the left temporal lobe (p. 389)
- d ...
- e the "little brain" attached to the rear of the brainstem; its functions include processing sensory input and coordinating movement output and balance
5 Multiple choice questions
- the large band of neural fibers connecting the two brain hemispheres and carrying messages between them
- controls language expression-an aread of the frontal, usually in the left hemisphere, that directs the muscle movements involved in speech
- the portion of the cerebral cortex lying at the top of the head and toward the rear; receives sensory input for touch and body position
- the intricate fabric of interconnected neural cells that covers the cerebral hemispheres; the body's ultimate control and information-processing center.
- a system of functionally related neural structures in the brain that are involved in emotional behavior
5 True/False questions
plasticity → the brain's capacity for modification, as evident in brain reorganization following damage (especially in children) and in experiments on the effects of experience on brain development
thalamus → 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
hypothalamus → 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
split brain → a condition in which the two hemispheres of the brain are isolated by cutting the connecting fibers (mainly those of the corpus callosum) between them
reticular formation → a nerve network in the brainstem that plays an important role in controlling arousal.
