primary visual posterior tip of occipital lobe receives visual info from retina
primary auditory superior temporal lobe receives input from cochlear receptors
primary gustatory parietal lobe perception of taste
primary olfactory medial surfaces of temporal lobe receives impulses from olfactory receptors and gives awareness of odor
primary motor pre-central gyrus of frontal lobe conscious control over skeletal muscles
Broca's speech anterior and inferior to pre-motor cortex motor speech area
somatosensory association posterior to primary somatosensory integrate and analyze sensory input to complete picture of what is being felt
visual association surrounds primary visual cortex interprets and evaluates stimuli
auditory association inferior to primary auditory integrates and interprets sound information
