. Write the Function of the cerebrum

Best Answer

1. The cerebrum is concerned with higher brain functions, such as thought, reasoning, interpretation of sensory impulses, control of voluntary muscles, and memory storage.

2. The carebral cortex has sensory, motor, and association areas.

3. The primary motor regions lie in the frontal lobes near the central sulcus. Other areas of the frontal lobes control special motor functions.

4. Areas that interpret sensory impulses from the skin are located in the parietal lobes near the central sulcus; other specialized sensory areas are in the temporal and occipital lobes.

5. Association areas analyze and interpret sensory impulses and provide memory, reasoning, verbalizing, judgment, and emotions.

6. One cerebral hemisphere usually dominates for certain intellectual functions.

7. Short-term memory is probably electrical. Long term memory is thought to be encoded in patterns of synaptic connections.
