The Functions/Parts of the Brain.

The Four Lobes
The Frontal Lobe
The first of four lobes within the cerebrum is the Frontal Lobe. The Frontal Lobe is what controls all your voluntary muscles, including speech and body movements. Not only does the Frontal Lobe control the voluntary muscles, but it also controls many of your thoughts including personality, emotions, intelligence, concentration/attention, judgment, and problem solving.
The Parietal Lobe
The second of the four lobes is the Parietal Lobe. The Parietal Lobe controls many things including touch(feeling), pain, temperature, distinguishing size/shape/color, spatial perception(being aware of), and visual perception.
The third lobe of the cerebrum would be the Occipital Lobe. The main thing that the Occipital Lobe controls is the vision or eye sight.
The final of the four lobes is the Temporal Lobe. The temporal lobe has yet again, a unique set of things to control. These things include your sense of understanding languages, memory, hearing, sequencing, and organization.
The Cerebellum and Brain Stem
The Cerebellum even has its own job. The Cerebellum controls your balance and coordination. If someone has better balance or coordination, their Cerebellum would be stronger, and if their Cerebellum is weak they have less balance and coordination.
The Brain Stem
Though out of all these parts, the Brain Stem probably has the most important job. The brain stem controls the breathing, heart rate, alertness, and consciousness. Without your brain stem, you wouldn't be alive right now.
