Brain Lobes and their Functions The brain is divided into four sections, known as lobes (as shown in the image). The frontal lobe, occipital lobe, parietal lobe, and temporal lobe have different locations and functions that support the responses and actions of the human body. Let’s start by identifying where each lobe is positioned in the brain.
The limbic lobe refers to a region of the cerebral cortex that borders the corpus callosum on the medial aspect of each hemisphere. This medially located lobe surrounds the rim of the ventricles of the brain and can be found just deep to the frontal, parietal and temporal lobes.
The occipital lobe, the smallest of the four lobes of the brain, is located near the posterior region of the cerebral cortex, near the back of the skull. The occipital lobe is the primary visual processing center of the brain. Here are some other functions of the occipital lobe:Brain Lobes Color Image Diagram - Chart - diagrams and charts with labels.
