Transcript of Today’s Episode

Hello and welcome to another episode of Interactive Biology TV, where we’re making biology fun! My name is Leslie Samuel. In this episode, Episode 25, I’m going to talk about the 4 lobes of the cerebrum and their functions. Inside this video, first I am going to answer the question, “What is the cerebrum?”, and then lastly, I’m going to talk about the 4 lobes and we’re going to look at what they do.

So first let us look at the question, “What is the cerebrum?” The cerebrum is the largest part of the human brain, and it’s involved in intellectual functions such as memory, attention, awareness, thought, language, and consciousness. These are the things that essentially make human beings human beings.

So let’s take a look at the 4 lobes of the cerebrum. We have the frontal lobe, the parietal lobe, the occipital lobe, and the temporal lobe. Let’s look at what they are involved in.

The frontal lobe is involved in processes such as reasoning, planning, speech, movement, emotions, and problem solving. So these are the types of things that are happening in the frontal lobe. Then we have the parietal lobe which is involved in movement, orientation, recognition, and perception. The occipital lobe is involved in visual processing, and this is why sometimes if you get hit at the back of the head, you see stars and so on. That has to do with visual processing. Then we have the temporal lobe which deals with auditory perception, memory, and speech.

So as you can see, there are a bunch of intellectual functions that are being controlled by the cerebrum of the brain. We have a general idea now of what regions are involved in what types of processing.

So in review, we answered the question, “What is the cerebrum?”, and then we looked at the 4 lobes and we spoke a little bit about their function. That’s it for this video. If you have any questions or comments, go ahead and leave them beneath this video. I’d be happy to answer your questions, and maybe even make a follow-up video to answer your specific question. You can always visit our website at Interactive-Biology.com if you want to get some more videos. That’s it for this video, and I’ll see you in the next one.

      Hi Daniella,

      The insula is a part of the cortex. It’s also called the insular cortex for that reason. Between the frontal and temporal lobe, there is the lateral sulcus (the groove that you see between the lobes). The insula is in there. In terms of its function, it plays a role in consciousness, homeostasis, and emotions.

      Hope that helps. If you have any other questions, don’t hesitate to ask.

    do both frontal and parietal lobe play role in speech?? if yes, the which part of speech do each of them have to do with??

  2. InteractiveBiology

    Do a google search for “sulci in the brain” and you’ll find a good wikipedia article that goes into all the sulci in the brain. Hope that helps!

    Why is this verse & script alike, if the “verse” is recently said to B discovered?

    Quran 96:15-16
    No! If he does not stop, We will take him by the naseyah (front of the head), a lying, sinful naseyah (front of the head)!

    Ezekiel 3:7-8
    7 But the House of Israel will refuse to listen to you, for they refuse to listen to Me; for the whole House of Israel are “brazen of forehead” and stubborn of heart. 8 But I will make your face as hard as theirs, and your “forehead as brazen” as theirs.

  4. Holybs111

    Here is the definition of Brazen so you don’t have to look it up.

    “brazen: faced with defiance and impudense.

    Both the script and the verse cover what is considered sin from the forehead.

    A definition of Light is Public Knowledge.

    Is it true that Muhammad recieved the words of the Quran from the Light According to the teachings was Muhammad given the Quran from the Light?

    There is public knowledge everywhere in this world, and every bit of information helps in education the mind.

    Is the term ‘cerebrum’ interchangeable with the term ‘cortex’ when talking about the brain? thanks I love your videos please don’t ever stop at least til I graduate!! ;)

  12. Xakana

    The cortex is the gray matter, which surrounds the white matter (this is the wrinkly part of the brain). So the cerebral cortex is the outermost sheet of neural tissue of the cerebrum of the brain. Hope that helps.

  13. Xakana

    No. Cortex is the gray matter, which surrounds the white matter (this is the wrinkly part of the brain). It’s a specific part of the cerebrum. They are not interchangeable.

    video is nice but it would be much better if there would be more
    information about lobes
    apart from this all videos are well understanding
