    moving towards the temporal lobe, steroids were given to reduce cerebral edema. The tumor weakened her left hemisphere causing numbness, followed by more frequent and strange seizures. Her previous seizures were grand mal convulsions, which she had on occasions. Though, her newly characterized seizures involved temporal lobe seizures that caused her not to lose consciousness, instead she would look and feel more dreamy (Sacks, 1985). Furthermore, EEG confirmed the temporal lobe seizures corresponded

    Family Member Perspective and Damage to Temporal Lobe The temporal lobe has several functions. Among these functions are auditory, memory, and emotional tone to sensory input. In these ways temporal lobes allow us to not only hear, but to comprehend what we hear and put it in to the proper context to effectively remember. (Columbia Encyclopedia, 2005) Because of the functions of the temporal lobe, someone who suffers from damage to this area due to either a lesion or tumor can also suffer

    Scientists have identified four major sections (or lobes) of the brain. There is a fifth section identified that is contained on the inside of the brain and cannot be seen from the external sections. The four lobes are found on both hemispheres (the two halves identified in the brain). The four lobes are the frontal, parietal (the upper portion), temporal (lower portion), and occipital (the farthest back section). The frontal lobe is in charge of the more complex processes and forms of thinking.

    According to Dr. Vilayanur Ramachandran, in his movie “Secrets of the Mind,” our vision system is divided into two parts, one with our eyes, and the other with our brain. He also says that there are two different pathways in which our brain uses to “see.” One of these pathways, he calls the evolutionary new pathway (the more sophisticated pathway) in which our eyes see, then the information is sent to the thalamus, and eventually entering the visual cortex of the brain. This pathway is the conscious

    associations. Cerebral localization was also supported by the findings of Paul Broca and Carl Wernicke. Broca determined that damage to an area in the lower left frontal lobe affected speech, which later became known as Broca’s area. Using this as a starting point, Carl Wernicke found that damage to the back portion of the left temporal lobe resulted in an impairment with understanding language; this area was named as Wernicke’s area. Later researchers discovered areas in the brain for controlling movement

    melodic deficits we learned about in Chapter 10 seem to apply regardless of whether subjects are working with real or imagined notes. The take-home conclusion is that both musical imagery and musical perception appear to involve regions in the right temporal lobe. Brain imaging during musical imagery The other main method in cognitive neuroscience is functional brain imaging. We have already learned in Chapters 10 and 11 that areas in right frontal and auditory cortex are activated during melodic tasks

    The compound MDMA (3,4-methylenedioxymethamphetamine) was first synthesized as a precursor to a drug that they hoped would be effective in controlling bleeding. The German pharmaceutical company Merck filed a patent for the compound in 1912 and their patent application was granted two years later, in 1914. Despite rumors, there is no evidence that they were aware it was psychoactive or intended to market it as a product. In 1927 and 1959, Merck researchers investigated MDMA’s potential use as a stimulant
