The Brain: It’s parts, their function, & the effect on our behavior

An interactive WEBQUEST for Psychology created by

Mr. Patrick MacLaughlin


Slide2 l.jpg

  • The purpose of this Webquest is to have you examine different ways to examine the brain, and to review the functions of the parts of the brain. The links provided will provide you with an opportunity to find all the answers necessary to be met with success.

  • There are different parts to the Webquest, and some written information you are responsible for. You will turn in any written work with your study guide for chapter 3.

  • The goal of this first activity is to map out the brain's motor cortex. Before you, laying on an operating room table, is a patient. A surgeon has already removed the top of the patient's skull, exposing the brain. Moving your cursor over the motor cortex, highlighted in yellow, causes the pointer on the monitor to change into a probe. Depressing the mouse button lowers the probe until it touches the brain. Depending on the location touched, a body part moves. After the seventeenth and final motor area is found, the patient's body dances to techno music.

  • Probe the Brain

  • After you have done the brain probe activity, go to the links below and read the article.

  • Scans and MRI's

  • What are the differences between these things anyway?

  • After reading the article provided, write an explanation to the following question:

    “Explain why MRI’s and CAT scans would be preferable to brain probes. Knowing this technology is available, however, there are conditions under which a brain probe would be necessary. Explain what those conditions would be and why a brain probe may still be required.”

  • After you’ve compared the different types of scans, answer the questions on the sheet by using the links below.

  • History of the Brain Timeline

  • 3-D Brain Anatomy
