What does what in the BRAIN? +
[thinking] FRONTAL LOBE
The frontal lobe plays an essential role in memory, attention, problemsolving, motivation, impulse control, judgment, and social behavior. It was the last region of the brain to evolve.
[memory] TEMPORAL LOBE
The temporal lobe plays a key role in the creation and preservation of long-term memories. It’s also involved in processing visual and sound stimuli.
[speaking/understanding] BROCA’S AREA
This region of the brain is involved in speech function. Your native language is stored here (along with any other languages you learned as a young child).
[hearing] AUDITORY CORTEX
The brain’s hearing center is sensitive to complex sounds and determines whether they are familiar, meaningful, important, useful, or dangerous.
[perception] PARIETAL LOBE
This region processes information from the sensory organs and sends it to other parts of the brain for interpretation.
[seeing] OCCIPITAL LOBE
The occipital lobe deals with vision, including the perception of distance, movement, and depth, as well as color determination, binocular perception, and recognition of objects and faces.
[speaking/understanding] WERNICKE’S AREA
This region of the brain is located near the auditory cortex, and as the center of language reception and comprehension it’s important for understanding speech.
