ACTIVITY: Lobes of the Brain… Copy this brain into yournotes and label the 4lobes of the Brain(Frontal, Temporal,Occipital & Parietal).Write a brief descriptionabout what each lobe isresponsible for. You maychoose to colour code itJ
The Damaged Brain… Answer the following scenarios on damage to the brain: 1. Bridget was a heroin addict. She had been using drugs consistently over the last 4 years, she had a large dose of heroin one night, it interrupted her breathing & heartbeat and it was fatal. What part of the brain has been damaged? 2. Nicholas was in a work related accident on the building site. His hypothalamus was damaged. Explain the significant impact that damage to this structure will have on Nicholas life. 3. Roger liked a few drinks after work each night. He noticed that whilst driving home, his driving performance was impaired after drinking alcohol. What part of Roger’s brain has been affected by the alcohol and explain why it impacts on his driving ability. 4. Keith was having an operation where he was going to be put under a general anaesthetic. Explain the role of the reticular formation in this process. 5. After being in an accident, Trent went into a semi-permanent sleep-like state-a coma. What part of his brain has been affected by the accident?

Neurons & Glial Cells Use the terms below to fill in the gaps. (Hint: The order of the words on the pairs is the same order asthey appear in the statements.Pairs of terms related to Neural Transmissionaxon; dendritesdendrites; axonsexcitatory; inhibitorychemical; electricalelectrical; chemicalmotor; sensoryresting potential; action potentialneurotransmitter; inhibitory1. The nerve impulse within a neuron is primarily ________________________________ ; howevercommunication between neurons is ___________________________________________.2. One ________________________________ transmits information within a neuron, but a number of________________________________ on a neighbouring neuron receive this information.3. Dopamine is a ________________________________that is mostly ________________________________, so it usuallylessens the response of a receiving neuron4. The electrical charge of a neuron at rest is called its ________________________________. When incominginformation alters the threshold of a neuron to 50 millivolts or above, a nerve impulse or________________________________ sweeps down the axon.5. Information transmitted between neurons is sent in a(n) ________________________________ form. Oncereceived, this information is transmitted along a neuron in a(n) ________________________________ form.6. ________________________________ are not protected by a coating of myelin, but________________________________ are.7. When a neuron increases its response to information received from another neuron, this activity isdescribed as ________________________________. When the receiving neuron reduces its response, thisactivity is described as ________________________________.8. ________________________________ neurons transmit commands sent from the brain to muscles, glands andorgans that result in movement. ________________________________ neurons receive and transmitinformation about specific forms of external energy and internal stimulation, which is analysed andthen responded to by the brain.
