parietal lobe posterior to the frontal lobe and separated from it by the central sulcus; processes sensory and visual information
temporal lobe lies below the frontal and parietal lobes and is separated from them by the lateral sulcus; holds the primary auditory cortex. which receives sensory information from the ears
occipital lobe forms the posterior portion of each cerebral hemisphere and is separated from the cerebellum by a shelf-like extension of dura mater. Visual processing lobe The boundary between the occipital lobe and the parietal and temporal lobes is not distinct
insula located deep within the lateral sulcus and is covered by parts of the frontal, parietal, and temporal lobes; believed to process convergent information to produce an emotionally relevant context for sensory experience.
