This Is Your Brain This Is Your Brain With Pretty Colors
Sections Of the Brain
Sections of the Brain
The Frontal Lobe- Also called the Cerebral Cortex,
positioned directly behind your forehead, is
associated with reasoning, planning, parts of
speech, movement, emotions, and problem
The Parietal Lobe- Or the Sensory Lobe, is located in
the mid-section of the brain, and is associated with
movement, perception of stimuli, orientation,
recognition, and processing sensory information
such as pain, pressure, and touch.
Sections of the Brain
The Occipital Lobe- Located in the back portion
of the brain, is associated with Visual Processing.
The Temporal Lobe- Located on the bottom
section of the brain, is associated with
perception and recognition of auditory stimuli,
memory, and speech.
The Cerebellum- Provides Smooth, Coordinated Body

Now let’s Slice Things Up to see what
other goodies the brain contains.
The Corpus Callosum- Connects the two hemispheres of the brain
and allows them to work together and communicate.
The Hypothalamus- Controls Your Temperature, Your
Hunger/Thirst, Fatigue, and your Bodies Circadian Cycles.
Pituitary- The section of the brain that regulates glands in the body.
The Limbic system- Is primarily responsible for our emotional life,
and has a lot to do with the formation of memories.
Some of the major parts of the Limbic System include:
• Basal Ganglia- Motor Control, Cognition, and Motor
• Thalamus- Translates Sensory Information and sends to
cortex. It also controls Arousal, Consciousness, and
when you are Asleep and/or Awake.
• The Amygdala- Controls Emotions, Fear, Anger, Rage,
and your Fight or Flight Reflex.
• The Hippocampus- Is involved in the Creation, Storage,
and Retrieval of Memories.
The Pons- Controls your Sleep, Dreaming, Left and
Right Coordination, and Arousal.
The Medulla- Controls vital life support,
cardiac and respiratory functions.
THINKING FAST AND SLOW
BOTH DICTATE OUR PERCEPTION AND REACTION IN LIFE.
Fast Thinking is When You Are
Looking at Facial Expressions and
You Notice a Person is Happy, Sad,
or Angry. (Immediate Recognition)
Slow Thinking is When You Look at a
Complex Math Problem, Yes You
May Know it, But A Physical Internal
Reaction Occurs Causing Increased
Heart Rate And Pupil Dilation.
Encoding is a biological event beginning with
perception through the senses.
Encoding is the crucial first step to creating a
new memory. It allows the perceived item of
interest to be converted into a construct that
can be stored within the brain, and then
recalled later from short-term or long-term
