Review Questions 1. What are the anatomical boundaries of the temporal lobes? 2. List the subdivisions of the temporal lobes. 3. What are the 5 connections of the temporal lobes? What functions are they associated with? 4. What is biological motion & which area of the temporal lobe is associated with it? 5. What do the Thatcher Illusion & split-faces test tell us about facial recognition? 6. Name the 9 main effects of temporal lobe damage.

II. 5 Main Connections of the Temporal Lobes 1. Hierarchical sensory pathway : primary & secondary auditory & visual information lateral temporal ctx temporal pole medial temporal lobe Visual through inferiortemporal gyrus & auditory through superior temporal gyrus Stimulus recognition; “familiarity” feeling 1. Dorsal auditory pathway : connects to posterior parietal ctx ; location of sounds in space, orientation & purposeful movement 2. Polymodal pathway : hierarchical sensory pathway STS neurons ; categorizing stimuli 3. Medial temporal pathway : auditory & visual areas limbic structures ; 4. Frontal lobe projection : posterior temporal ctx dorsolateral pfc ; anterior temporal ctx orbitofrontal ctx ; planning
