025 The 4 Lobes of the Cerebrum and their Functions

In this video, Leslie tells us about the cerebrum and the specific functions that each of its 4 lobes are responsible for.

Enjoy!

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.

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

OK........So what was fun about that....sounds like more talking to me...and where is the interaction..

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.

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.

I wish my frontal lobes were larger

Whats the difference between the Cerebrum and the Cerebal Cortex?

Is it safe to say that the cerebrum covers the frontal lobe?

cerebrum and cerebral cortex must be interchangeable

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!! ;)

The brain can be divided into four lobes, each of which is associated with different functions.

technically it is, its under the temporal lobe i saw it when i had to dissect a sheep brain in lab for bio this semester

Hi, unfortunately, Leslie won't be able to answer any inquiries and clarifications at the moment. He is very busy with a lot of work right now and is working on putting more videos to the site. So, please stay tuned for more Biology videos coming very soon!

Is the insula lobe not part of the cerebrum?

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?

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.

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! Leslie

Thanks very much. :) Would like to know the names of the sulci between the different lobes!
