The parts of the Cerebrum
This is the largest part of the human brain and is divided into 4 different "lobes", each part has their own function
- Frontal- controls our reason and problem solving skills along with our emotions
- Temporal- Auditory stimuli, speech, and memory
- Parietal-movement and oriental recognition
- Occipital-visual processing
What separates us from primates
I like to believe that the human brain is limitless. We create new words, terms, technology inventions, we grow intellectually every second of everyday. The human brain is only limited by itself and its the things that most separates us from any other primate.
The Brain by comparison
Human brains can be up to 3 times bigger than that of the average ape, making us the much more complex and intelligent species. While in so many other ways humans and apes are very much alike, scientist believe that human brains are much more complex because within the first two years of childhood we experience a rapid growth in white matter.
