Can you guess who I am? At 3 pounds I’m no heavy weight. But, I do control your whole body. I’m the one who gives the orders around here. Call me the godfather, or call me the big B, but whatever you do don’t try and hurt me.
I’m divided up into 2 parts called hemispheres. Each hemisphere ( right and left) is made up of four lobes: the frontal lobe, the parietal lobe, the temporal lobe, and the occipital lobe. Each of them have their own functions. The Frontal lobe is my forehead. It’s at the front. It helps you do problem solving, reasoning, planning, parts of speech and movement, and emotions. The Parietal lobe(on the top slightly to the back) controls touch, pressure, temperature, and pain. The Temporal lobe( below the frontal lobe) controls your hearing and memory. Lastly, the Occipital lobe(at the back), controls your vision.
In addition to the cerebrum(the largest part of the brain) there are two other parts ( the brainstem and the cerebellum) who are my two best friends. They are very important to me too. The brainstem controls breathing and indigestine and is located under the Occipital lobe and the Temperal lobe. Next is the cerebellum, this controls your posture and coordination and is located under the Occipital lobe. If you didn’t guess, I am the brain!
