Presentation Transcript
limbic system
Limbic system
  • A group of brain areas involved in emotional reaction and motivated behaviors.
    • Includes the amygdala, hippocampus, and hypothalamus.
hippocampus seahorse
Hippocampus (seahorse)
  • MEMORY
  • Forms long term memories for facts and events.
  • Helps us make connections between the past and the present.
  • Involved in spatial navigation and spatial memories.
amygdala almond
Amygdala (almond)
  • EMOTION
    • FEAR AND AGGRESSION
  • Involved in the arousal and regulation of emotion and our initial emotional response to sensory information.
  • Memory of emotional events
hypothalamus
Hypothalamus
  • Involved in drives associated with survival (hunger, thirst, emotion, sex, and reproduction)
  • Brain’s blood-analysis laboratory (monitors to determine your body’s condition)
  • Regulates body temp by sweating or shivering
the cerebrum
The Cerebrum
  • Largest structure of the brain
  • Uppermost part of the brain
  • In charge of most sensory, motor, and cognitive processes
two halves of the cerebrum
Two Halves of the Cerebrum
  • Divided into two halves called cerebral hemispheres which control actions on the opposite side of the body
  • Corpus Callosum- the large band of fibers that connects the two halves of the cerebrum.
  • Allows the two sides to communicate
cerebral cortex
Cerebral Cortex
  • A collection of several thin layers of cells covering the cerebrum
  • Responsible for higher thought processes
  • Wrinkling allows more cells to exist in a small space

Adult Brain

22 week old fetus brain

the four lobes occipital lobes
The Four Lobes – Occipital Lobes
  • Locatedat the bottom-back of the cerebrum
  • Contains the Visual Cortex
parietal lobes
Parietal Lobes
  • Located at the top back of the cerebrum
  • Spatial abilities, receives sensory information from joints, organs, taste buds.
  • Contains the Somatosensory Cortex
    • Processes information form skin
      • Pressure, pain, touch, temperature
temporal lobes
Temporal Lobes
  • Located at the sides of head, just above the ears
  • Processes memory, perception, emotion
  • Contains:
    • Auditory Cortex -processes sound
    • Wernicke’s Area – language comprehension
frontal lobes
Frontal Lobes
  • Located in the front
  • Involved in judging, planning, short-term memory, thinking creatively, and personality
frontal lobes continued
Frontal Lobes (continued)
  • Containsthe Motor Cortex – band of nerves that issues orders to muscles to produce voluntary movement
  • Also Contains:
    • Broca’s Area – involved in speech production
    • Allows us to speak fluently and smoothly
