The cerebral cortex is the structure of the brain where the higher mental functions called cognitive functions take place, since they deal with knowledge and consciousness. Some of the more important of these are: attention, understanding and expressing of both written and spoken language, learning, decoding of sensorial stimuli (sight, sound, touch, smell and taste) as well as self control, which define our behavior and personality. When any of the regions of the brain which normally control these above-mentioned functions does not develop properly or becomes damaged, then the corresponding cognitive function(s) become compromised.
Attention, consciousness, reasoning, planning, decision making, behavior, self control.
Pre frontal Cortex
Sensorial mapping, modulation of the senses, automatic movement patterns.
Controls purposeful movements throughout the body.
Parietal Cortex (Associative)
Provides communication with the other regions of the brain and allows the association of ideas with data stored in memory.
Occipital Cortex (Visual)
Processes visual input and allows us to understand shapes, sizes, colors, distances and the speed of objects in motion.
Responsible for temporal and spatial recognition and appraisal.
Frontal Lateral Cortex
Allows us to imagine and draw conclusions in an abstract way.
Temporal Posterior Cortex
Allows us to understand and decode both spoken and written language.
