Parts of the Brain

Functions and Location of 7 parts of the Brain

Frontal Lobe Functions: Provides what we might call our “consciousness,” i.e. how we know what we are doing within our environment by initiating activity and making judgments in our daily lives.
Temporal Lobe Functions: 1. Hearing perception. How we process the information we take in with our ears. 2. Also, the site of memory and conceptual development around sorting and categorizing. e.g. the place where face recognition is embedded.
Parietal Lobe Functions: Processes visual attention, touch perception, goal directed voluntary movements such as hand-eye coordination.
Occipital Lobe Functions: Visual perception. How we process the information we take in with our eyes.
Cerebellum Functions: Coordination of voluntary movement, balance and equilibrium.
Brainstem Functions: Controls involuntary body functions, such as heart rate, swallowing, reflexes, breathing, and digestion.
Amygdala Functions: 1. Crucial in emotional responses. Passes information to other parts of the brain. 2. Manages fear responses: i.e. what is often referred to as the flight or fight response. * Located in the center of the brain. Has an almond shape.
ASD Trivia: Autism Affects Autism affects all ethnic and socioeconomic groups. Minority groups tend to be diagnosed later and less often. (Autism Speaks, 2019)
ASD Trivia: Adults v. Children Research demonstrates that job activities that encourage independence reduce autism symptoms and increase daily living skills. (Autism Speaks, 2019)
ASD: Trivia: The Price of Autism On average, autism costs ~ $60,000 a year through childhood. The bulk is in special services and lost wages related to increased demands on one or both parents. Costs increase with the occurrence of intellectual disability. (Autism Speaks, 2019)
