The Cerebrum

The Cerebrum

There is one part of the brain that allows a person speak, memorize things, and perform activities. The main part of it is the cause of everything you do. Without it, you wouldn't be able to do these things. Environment is the major predictor of one's intelligence.

More about the Cerebrum.

A person's cerebrum is the cause of these things. It takes up two-thirds of the brain. There are two "hemispheres" of the brain. The left side of the brain is more dominant. The cerebrum contains four lobes. They're named the Frontal, Temporal, Parietal, and Occipital lobe (Kinser1).

The Frontal and Temporal lobes

The Frontal lobe is the lobe that is in the front of the brain. It contains a person's reasoning, planning, parts of speech, movement, emotions, and problem solving. A man named Phineas Gage had a tamping iron go through part of his frontal lobe. This changed his character forever. Another lobe is the Temporal lobe. It contains the brain's memory, speech, and stimuli. It is located at the bottom of the brain (Kinser1).

The Parietal and Occipital lobes.

Another lobe is the Parietal lobe. It is located in the top of the brain. It contains a person's orientation, recognition, and perception of stimuli. Last but not least, the Occipital lobe. It's located in the back of the brain. This part is associated with the brain's visual processing (Cerebrum1).

Conclusion

These four lobes are really important to the brain. Just imagine people without them. The Cerebrum is very important to all life. Without it, a person couldn't be intelligent because of the lack of memory, thinking, speaking, and a lot more simple process skills.
