Running head: Chapter 12 2 Chapter 12: Central Nervous System The Brain 1. Name the major regions of the adult brain. The major regions of the adult brain are 1) cerebral hemispheres, 2) diencephalon, 3) brain stem, and 4) cerebellum. 2. List the major lobes, fissures, and functional areas of the cerebral cortex. The lobes of the cerebral cortex are 1) frontal lobe, 2) parietal lobe, 3) temporal lobe, and 4) occipital lobe. The major fissures are the longitudinal fissure and the transverse cerebral fissure. The three functional areas are motor areas, sensory areas, and association areas. 3. Explain lateralization of hemisphere function. Lateralization is that each hemisphere has unique abilities not shared by its partner even thought we use both cerebral hemispheres for almost every activity, and each hemisphere appears almost identical. 4. Describe the location of the diencephalon and name its subdivisions. The diencephalon forms the central core of the forebrain and is surrounded by the cerebral hemispheres and consists of the thalamus, hypothalamus, and the epithalamus.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
