H. Thompson Topics: ArticlesAuthor: W. H. Thompson. Brain Cortex Lesion. Cortical lesions can be defined by pathophysiologic processes, broadly subdivided into undermigration, overmigration, and organizational disorders,42 Undermigration leads to lissencephaly type 1 (pachygyri and shallow sulci) and gray-matter heterotopia (T2 hyposignal foci, underlying the ventricle wall).
The cerebrum: this is divided into the right side (right hemisphere) which controls the left side of the body, and the left hemisphere which controls the right side of the cerebrum is also where you think and store your memory. Each hemisphere is divided into various sub-sections, the main divisions being the frontal lobe, temporal lobe, parietal lobe and occipital lobe. The frontal lobe includes the motor cortex (areas 4, 6, 8, 44), the prefrontal cortex (areas and ), and the cingulate gyrus (p. ). It is responsible for the planning, monitoring, and performance of motor, cognitive, and emotional functions (executive functions). Frontal lobe syndromes may be due to either cortical or subcortical damage and thus cannot be reliably localized without. 11 hours ago Ictal EEG: seizure onset in the right temporal lobe. Seizure discharge started in the left temporal lobe. 2–3 s after seizure onset ictal discharge spread to the right temporal lobe also spread to both frontal regions. Cerebral damage reduces the voltage of the ictal discharge on the side of the lesion and higher amplitude in the normal. Christopher Kennard, in Handbook of Clinical Neurology, Temporal lobe lesions. The temporal lobe contains the vestibular cortex in the posterior part of the superior temporal sulcus, and lesions in this region lead to contralateral tilts of the subjective visual vertical (Brandt and Dieterich, ) and fixation suppression of caloric-induced nystagmus (Carmichael et al., ).
Language recognition. The temporal lobe holds the primary auditory cortex, which is important for the processing of semantics in both speech and vision in humans. Wernicke's area, which spans the region between temporal and parietal lobes, plays a key role (in tandem with Broca's area in the frontal lobe) in speech comprehension. The functions of the left temporal lobe are not limited to low. Nervous system disease - Nervous system disease - Cerebellum: Damage to the oldest part of the cerebellum, which lies deep in the midline, results in difficulty in maintaining an upright posture. Nystagmus (jerky movements of the eyes at rest) is also likely. The vermis and anterior lobes of the cerebellum developed later in evolution; lesions of these structures particularly affect gait. The temporal lobe is one of the four main lobes or regions of the cerebral is located in the largest division of the brain known as the forebrain (prosencephalon). As with the frontal, occipital, and parietal lobes, there is one temporal lobe located in each brain hemisphere.
