  • 3rd side (hint)
Parietal Lobe
spatial organization; integrates sensory information from variety of modalities
space
Hippocampus
Seahorse, consolidate learning, move info from stm to ltm; compare new experience w/ old
campus is a place to learn
cerebrum
80% of brain weight; 2 hemispheres, connected by corpus callosum: what we think of generically as 'the brain' is a gross description of an anatomical element with many subdivisions. Responsible in general way for movement, sensory processing, olfaction, language learning and memory
connected by corpus c
Corpus Callosum
cable of 250 million nerves connect hemispheres of cerebrum
That many nerves!!
Cortex
covers cerbrum, 1/10 inch think folded; 10,000 miles of connecting fiber per inch
size of dinner napkin
Temporal lobe
above temples, ears; sound, music, face recog, parts of LTM, speech center, object recog
Now
Occiptial Lobe
sight/visual processing
hypothalmus
homeostasis, monitors internal systems, hormone release,
keep it cool and steady
cerebellum
little brain, 11% of brain weight, deeply folded, more neurons that rest of brain, coordinates movement, automotic motor activites
petite
thalmus
all sensory data except smell
Brainstem and RAS
old brain, reptilian, 12 body nerves, 11 end here, vital body functions, heart respiration
ras=reticular activating system alertness
Frontal Lobe
planning, thinking, executive functioning, will, personality
EF
Motor Cortex
band going from ear to ear for body movement
ears
amygdala
critical to initation of emotions, connects significant events to emotional responses and memory consolidation; if emotion associated w/ memory trace is stronger.
almond
somatosensory cortex
touch
Triune Brain
method of mapping brain based on evolution: reptile, limbic, cortex. Moves from primitive to 'modern'
Repitilian brain
brain stem is synonym; handles most basic bodily functions: breathing, blood flow, homeostasis, automatic functions
cortex
Part of third part of Triune brain; outermost layer of brain --also known as cerebral cortex handles higher order thinking, executive functioning, problem solving
limbic system
second element of triune brain; mammalian brain, emotions, fight flight consists of amgdala, hypothalmus, and hippocampus
