The Cerebrum To begin with, the human brain is the most complex part of the human body. It has control to every organ because of a primary functional unit which is the neurons. The exterior part of the brain has specific functions to every organ in the human body. Therefore, the human brain is the most important organ in the human body. A person can be left brained or right brained according to how they act. The Cerebellum is the trilobed structure of the brain. The cerebellum helps provide smooth coordinated body movement. Examples would balance, posture, coordination, and voluntary movements. It also modifies motor commands to make more movement accurate and adaptive. The cerebellum is located at the back of the brain and contains 50%…show more content…
(Canedo, A. (1997, February 7)) Broca’s area can also be called convolution of Broca. Broca’s are has functions linked to speech production. In other terms it produces language. Broca’s area was discovered in 1861 by Paul Broca. Broca’s area is connected to Wernicke’s area by a neural pathway called accurate fasciculus. (Broca’s Area (n.d.)) Parietal lobe receives all somatosensory input from the body. Wernicke’s area is located in the back of the parietal lobe. Wernicke’s area is important for understanding sensory information for language. Damage to this part of the brain produces sensory aphasia. Patients cannot understand language but can still make sounds. (Amthor, F. (n.d.)) Somatosensory cortex processes input from various systems in the body that are sensitive to touch. Specialized cells react specifically to pain. Multiple types of sensation from body, includes tough, sight, hear, smell, and taste. Sensory information carried to the brain by the neural pathways. (Somatosensory cortex. (n.d.)) Occipital lobe receives visual information directly from eyes. This lobe is important so the eyes know what they are seeing. These lobes have to be very fast to process rapid information that the eyes are sending. V1 is visual area one related to whichever image is around somebody’s current point of gaze. Damage to the V1 can cause blindness. (Scott, T. (n.d.)) Temporal lobe processes auditory info from the ears. The basal ganglia works with
