Parietal Lobe This is where your touch and taste sense are controlled along with some memory
Frontal Lobe Controls your feelings, emotions, complex thinking, and imagination
Corpus Collosum A band of fibers that connects the two hemispheres of the brain
Neuron The cells of the brain that transmit information to and from each other
Dendrite An "arm" that extends from the nucleus of a neuron connecting it to other neurons
Synapse The gap in between axons where neurotransmitters pass from one neuron to the next
Pituitary Gland Controls growth by releasing hormones in the body
Hypothalamus Helps to coordinate many functions in the brain, problems with it lead to depression and other disorders like ADHD.
