    1. I am the occipital lobe, who is located very far back in the brain. My function is to receive visual information that have been dected through my eyes. In this experience I have recive a visual image of a snake in the corner of my eye, which is acctually a green ribbon on a stick when I looked at it again retaining the information. 2. I am the thalamus, who is loacted within each cerebral hemisphere. My function is to process and intergrate sensory information and to relay it to the cerebral cortex. During this experience I was invovled with regulatining the level of awarness and attention in seeing the green ribon as a snake. In addition, I process the seonsry information that I have saw through the occipital lobe to the cerebral cortex. 3.…

    within D.F.’s lesions site—the ventrolateral occipital region. Thus, D.F. produced no activation in this area. Instead, D.F., showed activation in other areas which suggests, “[her] capacity to recognize color and grayscale pictures of objects is dependent on spared regions of the ventral cortex, including the primary visual cortex and extensive areas of the lingual and fusiform gyri” (James et al., 2006). Research by Podrebarac (2013) supports this finding, suggesting, “visual shape information…

    patients with temporal lobe epilepsy there is a high resistant to medication. This leads to a risk of memory impairments and mood disturbances. Long-term this leads to quality of life impairments and an increased risk of death. Due to the resistant to medication surgery is recommended for patients with TLE. Anteromesial temporal lobectomy (AMTL) is the most common surgery for the treatment of patients with TLE. AMTL is performed in both children and adults. AMTL is done in 30-40% of surgery…

    The Temporal Lobe, located below the lateral fissure, is responsible for sound perception, identification of objects, and comprehension of words. Similar to the process of visual perception, both the right and the left ear send signals to both hemispheres of the temporal lobe. Therefore, damage done to either the right or the left side of the temporal lobe will affect hearing in both ears. Besides sound perception, the temporal lobe collaborates with the occipital lobe to identify objects we…

    Dyslexia, Apraxia, and Gerstmann syndrome are a few examples of medical problems associated with damage. Unlike the other lobes, the occipital lobe is responsible for one important task. Visual processing is its job and is divided into several functional visual areas. Located at the complete back of the brain, the lobe resides under the occipital bone. Damage to the occipital lobe can result in some major medical problems. Occipital lesions can cause visual hallucinations, vision cuts in each…

    all the effort the brain the human body wouldn’t be completed. You will learn that the brain is broken into parts, it’s the cerebrum, cerebellum and the brain stem, they all have their job within the brain; the cerebrum breaks up into four parts the Frontal lobe, Temporal lobe, Parietal lobe, and Occipital lobe these lobes have important parts that work with the human body. The brain is vast with knowledge and information, and it’s been said that the human race only uses about ten percent of…

    The cerebral cortex is formed up of overlapped and intertwined gray matter in the cerebrum of the brain. It is associated with the superior brain functions, coordination of sensory information, the capability to gain knowledge, the consciousness of being able to receive memory, along with the expression of originality, therefore playing an essential part in our consciousness. The cerebral cortex consists of very small layers of cells composed of billions of neurons as well as their endless…

    There is significant white matter changes, which is rather confluent, especially in the parietal occipital lobes. At this point, I doubt that this is progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy, as she is not immunocompromised. It is not consistent clinically with posterior reversible encephalopathy syndrome, as she does not have any marked hypertension and there is no headache, confusion or visual changes. She is too old to be suffering from most of the leukodystrophies. At this point, I do…

    The frontal lobe of the brain is responsible for decision-making abilities, problem-solving, control of behavior, consciousness, and emotions. More important parts of the brain include the parietal lobe, the temporal lobe, and the occipital lobe. The parietal lobe functions as the processor of sensory information and works to control a human’s ability to understand spoken language. The temporal lobe’s primary functions are speech, memory, auditory perception, and emotional responses. The…

    read faster than colors are named. The selective attention theory is when interference occurs and naming colors needs more attention than reading words (“Neuroscience for Kids”). Adults find it harder not to say the word, unlike a younger child who has trouble reading words so saying the color is easier (“What Conflicting Mental Tasks Reveal”). The brain is divided into three main parts that have different functions. These parts are the cerebrum, cerebellum, and the brain stem (Mooney 9). The…
