Frontal Lobe- The frontal lobe of the brain is responsible


for important cognitive functions such as problem solving,
memory, language, emotional expression, judgement, and
sexual behavior.

Occipital Lobe- The occipital lobe of the brain is the


visual cortex which helps you process vision in order to
see.
Parietal Lobe- The parietal lobe of the brain has two parts in which their function are to process
sensory information like location and parts of the body and interprets visual information,
language, and more.

Temporal Lobe- The temporal lobe of the brain is


responsible for processing high level auditory perception
which makes it possible for you to hear things.
Central Sulcus- The function of the central sulcus is to
separate the parietal lobe from the frontal lobe and the
primary motor cortex from the somatosensory cortex.

Transverse Fissure- The transverse fissure divides the


cerebrum from the cerebellum.
Medulla- The function of the medulla is to regulate breathing, heart rate, blood vessel function,
digestion, sneezing, and swallowing. (circulation and respiratory)

Cerebellum- The cerebellum receives information from


the sensory system like the spinal cord and helps regulate
motor movements. (balance coordination, speech)

Gyrus and Sulcus- the function of the gyrus and the


sulcus is to maximize the amount of cerebral cortex that
can fit in the skull.

Corpus Callosum- The corpus callosum divides the cerebral


cortex into left and right hemisphere.
Pons- The pons is art of the brainstem that is responsible
for breathing and communication between different part
of the body.

Lateral Ventricles- The lateral ventricles hold


cerebrospinal fluid and cushion the brain while helping
with circulation and waste disposal.
Midbrain- The midbrain helps motor movement particularly
in the visual and auditory processing.

Diencephalon- The diencephalon passes on autonomic


information and and from the brain.
