Parietal Lobe
The parietal lobes can be divided into two
functional regions. One involves sensation and
perception and the other is concerned with
integrating sensory input. This lobe involves
sense of touch and understanding the space around
you.

Frontal Lobe
  • The frontal lobes are considered our emotional
    control center and home to our personality. The
    frontal lobes are involved in motor function,
    problem solving, memory, language, judgment,
    impulse control, and social behavior.

Occipital Lobe
  • The occipital lobes are the center of our visual
    perception system. The occipital lobe also
    involves interpreting shapes and colors. This
    lobe is located in the back of the brain.

6
Temporal Lobe
  • The temporal lobes are involved in the primary
    organization of sensory input. The temporal lobe
    controls smell and sound interpretation and
    speech. This lobe also controls short-term
    memory.

Cerebellum
  • The cerebellum is involved in the coordination
    of voluntary movement and balance. The cerebellum
    also controls muscle tone. It is located just
    above the brain stem and toward the back of the
    brain.

Neurons
9
Dendrites
Dendrites are involved in the nervous system,
either growing or retracting. This part of the
neuron works with the axon to receive messages
from other neurons. Dendrites bring information
to the cell body and axons take information away
from the cell body.

Synapse
  • Information from one neuron flows to another
    neuron across a synapse. The synapse contains a
    small gap separating neurons. For communication
    between neurons to occur, an electrical impulse
    must travel down an axon to the synaptic
    terminal.

11
Axon
  • An axon is a long tube like arm. It works with
    the dendrite to give and receive information to
    and from other dendrites.

12
Cell Body
  • The cell body or in other words, the soma, is
    the largest part of a cell. The cell body holds
    all of the general parts of a cell as well as the
    nucleus, which is the control center. The cell
    body also contains many other unique structures
    responsible for making energy and getting rid of
    cellular wastes.

Hippocampus

Your hippocampus is a brain structure that
compares new learning and past learning. There
is a region of the brain that is said to be
central to memory, this is our hippocampus. The
hippocampus also turns short term memories into
long term memories.

Amygdala
  • The amygdala processes emotions, like rage, fear,
    and feelings, sent from the senses input. Your
    amygdala is your brains 911 system.

Hypothalamus
  • Your hypothalamus is the part of your body that
    controls your temperature, appetite, and blood
    pressure. The hypothalamus works with the
    pituitary gland to get hormones from it. Motor
    function and the sleep cycle are also controlled
    by the Hypothalamus.

Hypothalamus notes
17
Pituitary Gland
  • The pituitary gland controls your growth and
    blood pressure. If you dont get enough sleep,
    it may stunt your growth and high blood pressure
    may occur. The pituitary is partially controlled
    by the hypothalamus.
