PSYC 2P20 Lecture Notes - Lecture 2: Cochlea, Hair Cell, Cortical Blindness
Frontal (purple); amazing for its skill set and functions. Primarily as a output lobe; does the behaviour. Involved in executive functioning; the ability to intend information, memory specifically working memory. Ability to switch two tasks at the same time; cognitive flexibility. Temporal (green); variety of functions includes some visual processes; primary in hearing, understanding the language, memory. Parietal (blue); visual/spatial sense, the ability to know where we are in space, in ability to touch and have body sensations, complex skills; math skills. Temporal, parietal, occipital = input lobes, input to the central nervous system. The information will eventually go to the frontal lobe. The surface of the cerebral hemispheres is highly convoluted with. The gyrus and the sulcus makes the brain tissue. The most visible are the central sulcus and the lateral/sylvian. Corpus callosum is a highway of axons that conveys information from one hemisphere to another. Secondary: perception assigning meaning to the stimuli.
