Alyssacypher.2.1.9

  1. 1. Constructing a Brain Model - Lesson 2.1.9 Alyssa Cypher A.P. Psychology S684006 16 October 2008
  2. 2. Median of Use <ul><li>Play-doh </li></ul>
  3. 3. The Cerebral Lobes Temporal Frontal Parietal Occipital
  4. 4. The Cerebral Lobes Associated with vision and visual processing. Occipital Lobe Associated with hearing, auditory processing, memory, and speech. Temporal Lobe Associated with touch and sensation. Integrates sensory input. Contains Sensory-Motor Strip. Parietal Lobe The largest cerebral lobe. Involved in movement, planning, and judgment. Contains the Motor Strip. Frontal Lobe Description Structure
  5. 5. The Motor and Sensory-Motor Strip Motor Strip Sensory Motor Strip
  6. 6. The Motor and Sensory-Motor Strip Receives sensory information from joints and tendons. Located in the Parietal Lobe. Sensory-Motor Strip Controls voluntary movements of the skeletal muscles. Located in the Frontal Lobe. Motor Strip Description Structure
  7. 7. The Corpus Callosum and Cerebral Cortex Cerebral Cortex Corpus Callosum
  8. 8. The Corpus Callosum and Cerebral Cortex 1/8” thick, gray-colored outer layer of the cerebrum. Made up of billions of neurons. Associated with higher cognitive functions. Cerebral Cortex Band of axon fibers. Connects the two hemispheres of the brain for communication purposes. Corpus Callosum Function Structure
  9. 9. Forebrain and Hindbrain Cerebellum Medulla Amygdala Hippocampus Thalamus
  10. 10. Forebrain and Hindbrain Hypothalamus Pituitary Gland
  11. 11. Forebrain and Hindbrain Associated with hunger, thirst, sexual activity, and emotions. Maintains homeostasis. Influences the pituitary gland. Hypothalamus Processes all the senses except smell. Relays to the cortex. Thalamus Located at the base of the skull. Associated with movement, posture, and maintaining equilibrium. Cerebellum Description Structure
  12. 12. Forebrain And Hindbrain Associated with long-term memory. Hippocampus Associated with basic emotions, memory, and basic motivations. Amygala Controls breathing and heart rate. Controls sensory and motor pathways. Medulla The “master gland.” Secretes endorphins, the body’s natural painkiller. Pituitary Gland Description Structure
  13. 13. The Reticular Activating System (RAS) The RAS
  14. 14. The RAS Activates forebrain. Associated with sleep regulation, muscle reflex, breathing, and pain perception. The RAS Description Structure
  15. 15. Language in the Brain Broca’s Area Wernicke’s Area
  16. 16. Language in the Brain Associated with language development and comprehension of language. Wernicke’s Area Associated with speech production, language, and controlling facial neurons. Broca’s Area Description Structure
