diagram of brain
The below diagram of brain shows how the brain appears when it is viewed from its sides.
You could see the cerebral hemispheres, cerebellum (C) & brain stem (B).
The Cerebral hemisphere is divided into four lobes;
* Frontal Lobe (F)
* Parietal Lobe (P)
* Temporal Lobe (T)
* Occipital Lobe (O)
The frontal lobe mainly controls the motor functions (skeletal muscle movements), eye movements, motivation & behavior etc.
The Parietal lobe mainly controls the sensory perception.
The temporal lobe controls our memory, emotional aspects of thinking etc.
The Cerebellum is an important coordinator of our body & limb movements.
The brainstem gives rise to most of the cranial nerves. It also controls vital centers like breathing, sleep & awake cycles etc.
