Part of Training Your Brain For Dummies Cheat Sheet (UK Edition)

The brain is complex but, thanks to cutting-edge science, knowledge of the brain has increased considerably. Here is a brief overview of the four key parts of the brain:

  • Frontal lobe. Located in the front of the brain, this lobe is responsible for planning and organising incoming information. You also use this lobe to control behaviour and emotions.

  • Parietal lobe. Crucial in integrating sensory and visual information.

  • Temporal lobe. Used for processing language and storing information in the long-term memory.

  • Occipital lobe. Home to the visual cortex.
