Anatomy and Functions of the Brain Structure


The brain diagram outlines four important cognitive sections, which are the following.


Frontal Lobe

This area is responsible for movement, thinking, reasoning, behavior, memory, and speaking. It is part of the higher cognitive functioning such as problem solving and social interaction, and is the most anterior (front) part of the brain in front of the cerebrum. Damage to this area could result in changes in risk-taking, attention, and other behaviors.


Parietal Lobe

The parietal lobe is all about differentiating between right and left, as well as sensation, reading, and understanding special relationships. This helps with somatic sensory perception, taste, hearing, sight, touch, and smell. It is a major processing hub near the top and centre of the cerebral cortex, which is vital for the senses.


Occipital Lobe

The occipital lobe is key for vision and color blindness. It is located at the back of the skull, and allows humans to perceive movement, facial expressions, words, and other sight-based components. Damage here could result in difficulty recognizing objects, an inability to identify colors, and more visual perception deficits.


Temporal Lobe

The temporal lobe is key for memory, hearing, behavior, and understanding language. It helps your senses understand the world around you, and aids in processing emotions, and helping you access specific memories. In addition to auditory stimuli, it helps with pain assessment. This lobe also houses the hippocampus, which is essential for memory processing. Damage to this area can lead to memory issues, in addition to language and speech perception.



The cerebellum is important for balance, coordination, and muscle control. It contains nerve cells, and is near the bottom of the brain. It is important to compensate for any shifts in body position or posture. At only 10% of the brain's size, it accounts for over 50% of neurons in the brain! It is the core of the brain for motor control and movement function.


Brain Stem

The brain stem is vital for many fundamental body functions such as breathing, blood pressure, heart rate, sleep, digestion, and body temperature. It connects your brain to the spinal cord, and sends important signals to the rest of your body for regulation. It is also comprised of the pons for sleep cycles, the medulla for heart rate, and breathing, as well as the midbrain for visual and auditory systems.
