First, the part of the brain that is responsible for higher forms of thought such as language, the broca’s area which pertains to the production of speech, located in the frontal lobe, is much needed for communication with my friends. When I first seen my friends it was the broca’s area that allowed me to speak smoothly and fluently to them, and as we sat around the table together eating pizza and playing cards it was this part of the brain that indorsed my friends and I to socialize as it helps everyone talk to one another. The Wernicke’s area that is affiliated with the broca’s area is the part of the brain that helps understand the meaning of words.
The somatic nervous system contains nerves that help skeletal muscles within the body function. This means that it helps these particular muscles perform movements when the brain commands it to do so. This nervous system also plays a part in sensory reception by transferring sensory information from certain organs (such as the skin and muscles) to the spinal cord and brain.
Our ability to partisipate in a conversation is made possible using our temporal lobe and the broca's areas of the brain. The broca's area is responsible for our speech production, comprehending language processing these languages, and helping a person to control facial neurons. These bundles of anatomical fibers can be found in the frontal lobe of the cortex. Composed of the pars triangular and the pars operculas; two primary parts. The pars triangular can be located in the broca's area. This part of the brain is believed to help interpret multiple modes of stimulus. the broca's area is where we organize and respond to verbal conducts. The pars opercularis can be found in the broca's area of the brain; supporting only one stimulus mode. Pars opercularis assist with coordinating the organ's used for producing speech and language because it is located near the area's of the brain that are related to our motor skills.
The central nervous system (CNS) is the processing center for the nervous system. It receives information from and sends information to the peripheral nervous system. The two main organs of the CNS are the brain and spinal cord. The brain processes
The somatosensory system has to do with touch, pressure, pain, temperature, movement, and vibrations from muscles, joints, and skin. Uit sends sensations through the spinal cord, to the brainstem, then the thalamic relay nuclei to the parietal lobe that houses the sensory cortex.
The parietal lobe is the dorsal part of the brain. The sensory cortex is located in this section where sensation and perception is integrated. “This lobe is most commonly associated with its capacity for spatial processing. It is here that external visual, or environment based, coordinates may be translated into internal, or body-based, coordinates and vice versa.”(Stephens PH.D, livestrong.com)
The Broca’s area is located in the prefrontal cortex, which, as explained in our textbook, is the part that is mostly responsible for our speech and our thinking. The primary function of this region is to assist us in speaking and the forming of words. This region would be affiliated as my friends and I converse during our game night. As we exchange words and laugh and roll from one topic of conversation to the next, the Broca’s area is utilized.
The Cerebellum is the part of the brain at the back of the skull in the vertebrates. Its function is to coordinate and regulate muscular activity. The Cerebellum is located behind the top part of the brain stem, it is where the spinal cord meets the brain, the Cerebellum is made of two hemispheres. The Cerebellum receives information from the sensory systems, the spinal cord, and other different parts of the brain, and then it also regulates motor movements. The Cerebellum coordinates voluntary movements such as posture, balance, coordination, and speech, and then it results in smooth and balanced muscular
“It plays such a vital role in human life that many consider it the essence of life.”(Huffman 70) It contains the frontal lobes, parietal lobes, the occipital lobes and temporal lobes. The Frontal lobes receive signals from the other lobes such as motor control, speech production and other higher functions. The parietal lobes Receive signals for bodily sensations and interpret them. The occipital lobes are responsible for vision. The temporal lobes are responsible for hearing, language, memory and some emotion. All of these parts of the brain conduct essential bodily functions and need to be functioning properly like a
The cerebral cortex is the largest outer most part of the brain. It consist of tissue known as gray matter which is made of neuronal bodies. The optimal function of the cerebral cortex is vitally important. All information necessary to sustain life is stored and processed in the cerebral cortex. The tissue are divided into the left and right sides which are joined together by the corpus callosum. The cerebral cortex is divided into four lobes, the frontal, parietal, occipital, and temporal lobe. Each area carrying its own set of functions and responsibilities. These four lobes together make up the primary somatosensory area of the brain which controls the five sensory systems in the brain taste, olfaction, touch, hearing and vision. These systems receive sensory information from the thalamic nerve projections. The primary motor area of the brain consist of a much smaller area located within
CNS and other parts of you body. The CNS receives information from all over the body, processes that information, and then sends out messages telling the body how to respond. Nerve Cells:
To begin with, the frontal lob, which is located in the front of the human head, is associated with reasoning, higher level cognition, language, and motor skills. Behind the frontal lobe lies the motor cortex in which is the part where the brain receives an ample amount of information. The information that was mentioned are from various lobes of the brain and helps the body with movements.
Similarly to Broca, in his studies, Wernicke encountered patients with brain lesions, however, these lesions were located on the posterior areas of the left temporal lobe. Also, while patients could speak, their words were often unrecognizable. This portion of the brain was identified to be responsible for understanding language
The Oxford Dictionary defines the brain as an organ of soft nervous tissue contained in the skull of vertebrates. This part of the body has three important features. These features help the brain carries out its functions. The three important features are the cerebrum, the cerebellum, and the brainstem.
The cerebellum (or ‘Little Brain’) is an area located at the back of the brain, positioned underneath the occipital and temporal lobes [Figure 1]. The structure’s main purpose is the fine-tuning of movement, and maintaining posture and balance. The cerebellum is commonly thought of as a motor system, because it is mostly involved in outputting to the movement (motor) system. However, the cerebellum’s purpose is not the creation of motor commands, rather the moderation and adaptation of commands to increase their accuracy. It also uses a surprisingly large amount of neurons relative to its size: although it is only approximately 10% of the brain’s total volume, it accounts for over 50% of the total number of neurons in the
