The frontal lobes:  located behind forehead; associated  with higher-level thinking, such as problem solving,  reasoning, and some aspects of speech. Also contains  motor cortex, which  controls voluntary  movement.  The temporal lobes , above ears;   involved in hearing, identifying objects,  understanding language, and storing  memories. Also play role in emotions.  The occipital lobes  at back of brain interpret visual  information like color, light, shape, and movement. The parietal lobes  on top of head  process senses like touch, pain,  temperature, pressure, and spatial  awareness. Also associated with  voluntary movement, attention, language,

Functional Areas of the Cerebrum**** Anterior frontal lobe (PRIMARY MOTOR) holds Broca’s area; controls ability to speak, language processing and speech comprehension. Broca’s aphasia - patients can understand language but produces slow, halting speech that is rarely grammatical Temporal lobe (TEMPORAL GYRUS) holds Wernicke’s area for language, comprehension and word choice. Wernicke’s aphasia - patients cannot understand language. Produce generally grammatical sentences, but they are often Connected by fibers...
