Cerebral Cortex (wk.7)

What are the 4 lobes of the cerebrum? Frontal, Temporal, Parietal, Occipital
The _____ sulcus separates the frontal and parietal lobes. Central
Each cerebral hemisphere primarily controls/receives information from the (Ipsilateral/ Contralateral) body. Contralateral
True/False: The 2 hemispheres are functionally identical. False
________ Areas are 52 cortical divisions presenting with different histological layouts. Broadmann's
The precentral gyrus of the Frontal lobe is the primary ________ cortex Motor
_________ is the representation of the cortical areas dedicated to processing information from a particular part of the body. Homunculus
The motor homunculus refers to the ______ gyrus. Precentral
What lobe consists of the superior, middle, and inferior frontal gyri, and precentral gyrus on the lateral, and gyrus rectus and orbital gyri (prefrontal cortex) on the inferior surface? Frontal
The _____ cortex is concerned with motor integration, planning, and judgement. Prefrontal
When this area is lesioned it results in expressive aphasia characterized by non-fluent speech, impaired repetition, but mostly preserved language comprehension. Broca's area
In the frontal lobe, this area is found in the posterior portion of the inferior frontal gyrus. Broca's area
This lobe consists of the superior, middle, and inferior temporal gyri on the lateral surface, and the parahippocampal gyrus, and medial and lateral occipitotemporal gyri on the inferior surface. Temporal
The transverse temporal gyri of Heschl are the primary _____ cortex. Auditory
The insula is concerned with ________ integration and _______. Auditory integration, taste
The ____________ gyri are the visual association areas concerned with the perception of contrast color and shape. Occipitotemporal
Lesion of the Occipitotemporal gyri results in agnosia (i.e. prosopagnosia) which is where one can't recognize what? Faces
Hearing, taste, and visual associations primarily belong to which lobe? Temporal
Motor function primarily belongs to which lobe? Frontal
This lobe consists of the precuneus on the medial surface, and the postcentral gyrus, the superior and inferior parietal lobules on the lateral surface. Parietal
The postcentral gyrus is the primary ______ cortex. Somatosensory
The sensory homunculus refers to the ________ gyrus. Postcentral
Sensory information primarily belongs to which lobe? Parietal
The ______ _______ _______ areas receive visual, auditory, and limbic inputs concerning 3 dimensional perception. Posterior parietal association
Lesions of the posterior parietal association areas results in what? inability to recognize 3D objects through touch, personal neglect syndrome, and spatial neglect syndrome
______ area is in the posterior portion of the superior temporal gyrus and with the adjoining supramarginal and angular gyrus on the dominant hemisphere and are concerned with language comprehension. Wernicke's
Lesions of this area results in receptive aphasia characterized by fluent speech with impaired repetition and comprehension. Wernicke's
Vision primarily belongs to which lobe? Occipital
This lobe consists of the cuneus and lingual gyri. Occipital
The Occipital lobe contains the primary and association ______ cortices. Visual
Lesions of this lobe lobe result in contralateral homonyms hemianopsia with sparing of the macula. Occipital
