Localisation Of Brain Functions
Different areas of the brain are responsible for different functions
Cerebral cortex → higher order cognitive functions (divided into 4 lobes)
Frontal → creativity, personality and thinking
Occipital → Vision
Parietal → sensory information (temp., touch, pain)
Temporal → memory and auditory processing
Paul Broca - studied eight patients w/ language problems.
All had specific damage to area in left hemisphere, known as Broca’s area and is now associated w/ language production.
If damaged - ability to speak will be lost
Neurotransmitter = chemical substance
Released between neurons in brain
Neurons = electrically excitable cells forming base of nervous system
Neurotransmitters released over synapses as chemical messenger
According to biological approach these control physiological and psychological behaviour
