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. View slide
  • The Cerebellum- Provides Smooth, Coordinated Body Movement. Your Cerebellum Your Drunk, Cerebellum, Go Home!
  • 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.
  • Limbic System Some of the major parts of the Limbic System include: • Basal Ganglia- Motor Control, Cognition, and Motor Learning. • 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 Brainstem
  • Brain Stem 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.
  • Memory Encoding 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 memory. FAST AND SLOW THINKING
