The brain can be divided into four different sections, called lobes. The lobes control our emotions, reasoning, hearing, vision, and much more.
Located in the front of your brain around your forehead, the frontal lobe is responsible for emotions, reasoning, planning, movement, and parts of speech. It's connected to purposeful acts such as creativity, judgment, problem solving, and planning as well.
Located behind the frontal lobes above the temporal lobes and at the top back of the brain, the parietal lobes are connected with the processing of nerve impulses related to the senses, such as touch, pain, taste, pressure, and temperature. They are responsible for language functions
Located on either side of the brain and just above the ears, the temporal lobes are responsible for hearing, memory, meaning, and language. The temporal lobe also plays a role in emotion and learning. They interpret and processes auditory stimuli.
Located in the back of the brain, the occipital lobe is responsible for the brain's ability to recognize objects. It also controls our vision.
Located in the center of the brain, the thalamus controls your sensory and motor integration. As the thalamus receives information from the senses it sends this information to the cerebral cortex. The thalamus also receives information from the cerebral cortex which it sends to other parts of the brain and brain stem.
