Secondly, posterior to the frontal lobe and above the temporal lobe is the parietal lobe. This lobe is responsible for the receipt of sensory information, specifically as it relates to touch, pain, and spatial awareness (Gazzaniga, Irvy, & Mangun, 2018). Damage, or lesions, to this lobe in the brain are associated with a variety of impacts. Damage to this lobe may impact one’s overall sense of spatial awareness. For example, this may result in inability to conceptualize one’s environment, lack of body awareness, and in extreme cases the experience of out of body experiences (Gazzaniga, Irvy, & Mangun, 2018). Additionally, research also suggests that damage to this area may impact a person’s ability to recall memories. Researchers found that when the parietal lobe was damaged, a person will still be able to recall information, however, they will lose confidence in what they are recalling (Hower et al., 2014). For example, when asked to recall a specific memory, a person may begin doubting crucial information, or leaving out rich details, that would have immediately come to them before damage to the parietal lobe.
