How does the brain work?
The brain controls thoughts, memory, speech, movements of the limbs, and organ function. There are many parts to the brain, and each section has a specific role to play in the human body.
Four lobes make up the brain:
Frontal lobe - the largest of the four lobes, is responsible for the body’s motor skills, such as voluntary movement, language, and intellectual and behavioral functions. This area controls memory, intelligence, concentration, temper and personality.
Temporal lobe - located on each side of the brain at ear level, is important for hearing, memory and speech.
Parietal lobe - at the center of the brain, is where sensory information like heat, pressure and pain is received and interpreted.
Occipital lobe - found at the back of the brain, is primarily responsible for vision.
