Lobes and functions of the brain - image description

The diagram shows the different lobes of the brain and their functions. The frontal lobe is towards the front of the brain and is involved in thought, memory and behaviour. The parietal lobe is behind the frontal lobe. This is involved in language and touch. The temporal lobe is shown below the frontal and parietal lobes. It is involved with hearing, learning and emotions. The occipital lobe is at the back of the brain and is involved in vision. The diagram shows the cerebellum which is under the main part of the brain. It is involved in balance and coordination. The brain stem is shown coming from under the centre of the brain. This deals with breathing, heart rate and temperature.
