Frontal and Parietal lobes

• Attention

2

Parietal Lobes

Visuospatial

3

Frontal and Temporal Lobes

Language

4

• Executive function

Frontal Lobes

5

Temporal and Frontal lobes

Memory

6

• Area of cortex between frontal and occipital lobes

parietal lobe

7

Principle regions of parietal lobe

• post-central gyrus • superior parietal lobule • supramarginal gyrus • angular gyrus

8

Processes and integrates somatosensory and visual information

parietal lobe

9

parietal lobes

Processes sensations

and guidance of movement

10

"Gerstmann's Syndrome."

• Lesion usually in angular and supramarginal gyri

Left parietal lobe damage

11

• right-left confusion, dysgraphia, dyscalculia

"Gerstmann's Syndrome."

12

finger agnosia.

"Gerstmann's Syndrome."

13

Right parietal lobe damage

Neglect of contralateral side of body or space

Difficulty making things (constructional apraxia)

14

Denial of deficits (anosagnosia)

Right parietal lobe damage

15

• Sensory Thresholds • Prosopagnosia• 

other symptoms of parietal lobes damage

16

• Inability to locate and recognize parts of the body or self

other symptoms of parietal lobes damage

17

• Neglect of visual, auditory and somatosensory stimuli on the side of the body opposite to the lesion

Contralateral Neglect

18

defective sensation and perception and

defective attention

cause Contralateral Neglect

19

Temporal Lobe

below the Sylvian fissure and anterior to occipital cortex

20

Temporal lobe

amgydala, limbic cortex, and hippocampus

21

Temporal Lobe

auditory and gustatory areas

22

• Inputs from all sensory modalities, parietal and frontal lobes,

Temporal Lobe

23

input from ventral visual stream, limbic structures and basal ganglia

Temporal Lobe

24

Wernicke’s area

Temporal Lobe

25

Comprehension of language

Wernicke’s area of temporal lobe

26

Processing of auditory input

Primary auditory cortex of temporal lobe

27

Learning and memory

Hippocampus and Amygdala of Temporal lobe

28

• Lesion in superior temporal gyrus

Wernicke's Aphasia

29

• Comprehension of speech is impaired

• Comprehension of speech is impaired

Wernicke's Aphasia

30

Speech is: –

fluent but meaningless (word salad) –

devoid of any content –

neologisms

Wernicke's Aphasia
