When viewing the brain, the overall cortex is typically divided into four distinct sections based on the anatomical features of the area. The four major divisions, or lobes, are the frontal lobe, the parietal lobe, the temporal lobe, and the occipital lobe (Gazzaniga, Irvy, & Mangun, 2018). Current research maintains that each of these lobes are responsible for a variety of functions. That being said, damage to each of these areas is believed to be associated with specific consequences depending on the area in which the damage was received. We will look at each of these areas one at a time to understand their function and the impact that damage to each section could potentially have.
