What are the different lobes of the brain?
Frontal lobe, temporal lobe, parietal lobe, occipital lobe
What is the corpus callosum?
A bundle of fiber that bridge the two hemispheres together. The largest
commissure in the brain.
What is a callosotomy and under which circumstances is it performed?
A surgical procedure to control general seizure or epilepsy by cutting the
corpus callosum.
How do commissures in the brain connect?
By commissures fibers, which are white matters that connect the two
hemispheres of the brain.
What are the general differences between the hemispheres?
Left hemisphere is dominant in language, limited in perceptual function;
while the right hemisphere is superior in creativity and facial detection.
Identify the lobes and their general functions in the brain?
The frontal lobe is responsible for initiating and coordinating
motor movements; higher cognitive skills, such as problem
solving, thinking, planning, and organizing; and for many aspects
of personality and emotional makeup
The parietal lobe is involved with Parietal lobe sensory processes,
attention, and language. Damage to the right side of the parietal
lobe can result in difficulty navigating spaces, even familiar ones.
If the left side is injured, the ability to understand spoken and/or
written language may be impaired
The occipital lobe helps process visual information, including
recognition of shapes and colors
The temporal lobe helps process auditory information and
integrate information from the other senses. Neuroscientists also
believe that the temporal lobe has a role to play in short-term
memory through its hippocampal formation, and in learned
emotional responses through its amygdala.
Be able to identify type of brain sections and the anatomical terms of
location.

How are the visual fields processed in each hemisphere?
Left visual field to the right hemisphere; input from right visual field to
the left hemishpere
If a word is flashed to the right/left visual field what will a split patient
say? Do?
Draw? With which hand? Be sure to be able to include in the explanation
diagrams.
If a word flashed to the right visual field, it will present in the left brain
hemisphere, which is dominant by language and the patient will say the
word.
If the word flashed to the left visual field, it will present in the right brain
heisphere. The patiet wo’t say the word ut istead will use left
hand to draw the picture.
