1

Frontal lobe function

"Higher function": planning, consequences of action

2

Where is the precentral gyrus located? function?

Frontal lobe
Signaling voluntary msk movements= primary motor cortex

3

where is the post central gyrus located? function?

Parietal lobe
Primary somatosensory: perception of touch

4

Parietal lobe function

Body sensation
spatial perception

5

Temporal lobe function

1. Hearing- receives input from cochlear nerve.
2. Memory

6

Occipital lobe function

Vision

7

Define basal ganglia

Groups of nuclei that surround the thalamus

8

Basal ganglia function

Motor control: regulate body movements by processing sensory and motor information coming from the cerebral cortex

9

Thalamus function

Relay station between the cerebrum and the rest of the nervous system
Processes nearly all motor sensory input before it reaches the cortex

10

Define corpus callosum

Connects the gray matter regions of two hemispheres of the cerebrum =allows communication between the two sides of the brain and enabling integrated function

11

What makes up the limbic system? Function?

Hippocampus + Amygdala
=Memory, emotion, fear

12

What makes up the basal ganglia?

1. Caudate Nucleus
2. Globus Pallidus
3. Putamen
