key components orbitofrontal emotion, attn, impulse (assoc limbic)
key components medialfrontal motivation (lesion gives akinetic mutism, apathetic state)
key components dorsolateral frontal attn, working memory, sequencing (spelling WORLD backwards), executive fxn pseudodepressed
key components parietal nondominant=visuospatial (ie drawing), dominant=praxis
key components lateral temporal dominant=speech, nondominant=understanding prosody (emotl content of speech**1 language component handled by non dominant), also auditory perception and vocabulary
where's lesion if trbl pairing things lateral temporal
what are 2 main parts of medial temporal hippocampus and amygdala
key components hippocampus, 2 dz in which affected short term memory storage/retrieval and consolidating short term into long term, affected in AD and temporal lobe epilepsy
key components amygdala emotionally charged memories (overlap w primary olfactory, ie power of smells), aversive conditioning
how is dominance determined where language center is
MC site of epilepsy in adult hippocampus (ie medial temporal)
drawing all animals the same would be injury where lateral temporal
where do sympathetic and parasympathetic tracts start hypothalamus
where's the red nucleus, what is it in midbrain, where Cb synapse
describe pt HM had hippocampus and amygdala removed bilaterally and couldn't form any new memories (hippocampus consolidation short term memory to long term memory), but had procedural memory and would improve on tasks
sources of posterior circulation and anterior circulation and relation to structures anterior circulation from carotid (includes m cerebral), near optic chiasm; posterior circulation from vertebral, near brainstem
which side do Cb lesions affect SAME SIDE (ipsi) bc dbl crossed
