Which regions of the cerebral cortex lie at the back of the head and receive visual information?
Keeping this in view, where in the cerebral cortex is the sensory information interpreted?
Sensory areas are the areas of the brain that receive and process sensory information. The cerebral cortex is connected to various subcortical structures such as the thalamus and the basal ganglia. Most sensory information is routed to the cerebral cortex via the thalamus.
Similarly, which portion of the cerebral cortex is located nearest the top of the head just behind the frontal lobes? Temporal Lobe: side of head above ears situated immediately behind and below the frontal lobes; the temporal lobe controls memory, speech and comprehension. Brain Stem: lower part of brain, leads to spinal cord; the brain stem contains nerve fibers that carry signals to and from all parts of the body.
Correspondingly, what part of the brain is the cortex?
The cerebral cortex (plural cortices), also known as the cerebral mantle, is the outer layer of neural tissue of the cerebrum of the brain in humans and other mammals. It is separated into two cortices, by the longitudinal fissure that divides the cerebrum into the left and right cerebral hemispheres.
What are the 4 lobes of the cerebral cortex and their functions?
Traditionally, each of the hemispheres has been divided into four lobes: frontal, parietal, temporal and occipital. Although we now know that most brain functions rely on many different regions across the entire brain working in conjunction, it is still true that each lobe carries out the bulk of certain functions.
