5 Matching questions

  1. wenicke's area
  2. occipital lobes
  3. motor cortex
  4. frontal lobes
  5. cerebellum
  1. 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.
  2. b an area at the rear of the frontal lobes that controls voluntary movements
  3. c controls language reception—a brain area involved in language comprehension and expression; usually in the left temporal lobe (p. 389)
  4. d ...
  5. 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

  1. the large band of neural fibers connecting the two brain hemispheres and carrying messages between them
  2. controls language expression-an aread of the frontal, usually in the left hemisphere, that directs the muscle movements involved in speech
  3. 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
  4. the intricate fabric of interconnected neural cells that covers the cerebral hemispheres; the body's ultimate control and information-processing center.
  5. a system of functionally related neural structures in the brain that are involved in emotional behavior

5 True/False questions

  1. plasticitythe 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

          

  2. thalamusthe 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

          

  3. hypothalamusthe 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

          

  4. split braina condition in which the two hemispheres of the brain are isolated by cutting the connecting fibers (mainly those of the corpus callosum) between them

          

  5. reticular formationa nerve network in the brainstem that plays an important role in controlling arousal.
