- c 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
- d 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
- e 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
5 Multiple choice questions
- an area at the rear of the frontal lobes that controls voluntary movements
- a technique that enables us to see static images of the brain's structures; uses magnetism to achieve this effect
- 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
- the area at the front of the parietal lobes that registers and processes body touch and movement sensations
- 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
amygdala → ...
Broca's area → controls language expression-an aread of the frontal, usually in the left hemisphere, that directs the muscle movements involved in speech
cerebral cortex → the intricate fabric of interconnected neural cells that covers the cerebral hemispheres; the body's ultimate control and information-processing center.
glial cells → 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
cerebellum → the inner part of an organ or structure in plant or animal
