  20. What are the 5 lobes of the telencephalon?
    • frontal
    • parietal
    • occipital
    • temporal
    • insula
  21. Frontal lobe of telencephalon:
    occurs between frontal poles to the central sulcus posterior, and lateral fissure laterally
  22. Parietal lobe of telencephalon:
    extends from central sulcus to parieto-occipital sulcus posteriorly
  23. Occipital lobe of telencephalon:
    posterior to parieto-occipital sulcus
  24. Temporal lobe of telencephalon:
    inferior to lateral fissure and extends back to level of parieto-occipital sulcus
  25. What is another name for the lateral fissure?
    Sylvian fissure
  26. Insula of the telencephalon:
    lies deep to lateral fissure and comprised of 4-5 gyri
  27. What are other names for the insula of the telencephalon?
    • Island of Reil
    • Hidden lobe
  28. The white matter in the telencephalon contains:
    cellular processes of cell bodies (axons)
  29. The grey matter of the telencephalon contains:
    cell bodies of neurons (not-myelinated)
  30. The grey matter of the telencephalon makes up the:
    cerebral cortex
  31. How thick is the cerebral cortex?
    4-5mm thick
  32. How big is the cerebral cortex?
    2.5 sq ft.
  33. The thickness of the cerebral cortex depends on:
    the gyrus
  34. How thick is the precentral gyrus?
  35. How thick is the calcarine gyrus in the occipital lobe?
  36. How many neurons are found in the cerebral cortex?
    14 billion
  37. Neurons of the cortex are:
    amitotic (w/ a few exceptions)
  38. amitotic
  39. What occur in the 6 histological layers of cells in cortex?
  40. Each layer of the cortex communicates w/:
    another adjacent layer
  41. Organized horizontally, the 6 layers of cells in cortex (superficial to deep) are:
    • molecular
    • external granular
    • external pyramidal
    • internal granular
    • internal pyramidal
    • polymorphic
  42. If the cortex layers are normal, then communication is:
  43. If cortex layers have messed up cyto-artitecture, communication:
    is impaired
  44. How are the cortex layers organized?
    • named by type of neuron present
    • density of cells
    • arrangement of cells
  45. Cortex dysfunctions if:
    the cyto0architecture is disrupted
  46. What are types of functional cortical mapping?
    • pathological data
    • electro-stimulation data
    • blood flow data
    • metabolic data
  47. Pathological data:
    crude approach, made assumptions based on area of brain that is injured and the behavior that ensued
  48. Electro-stimulation data:
    tap areas of brain w/ current and see what happens; often used in neurosurgery to make sure the right spot is operated on
  49. Blood flow data:
    • functional MRI (fMRI)
    • there is an increase or decrease in blood flow as a result of a task
    • during fMRI, pt does a task while in MRI tube and physicians observe which area of the brain has a "hot spot"
  50. What are the limitations of blood flow data?
    • lighting up does not occur in real time
    • don't know if area is excitatory or inhibitory
  51. What are two types of metabolic data?
    • PET scan
    • SPECT
  52. PET scan:
    • pt injected w/ radioactive isotope w/ short half-life that binds to oxygen and glucose
    • pt performs task and area active has greater emission of photons
  53. SPECT:
    single photon emitted CT scan
  54. Historical Maps were based on:
    pathological and electro-stimulation data
  55. What are the types of historical maps?
    • Campbell
    • Broadmann
    • Economo
  56. What is the most famous historical map still used today?
  57. Campbell:
    • 1905
    • mapped 20 areas
  58. Broadmann:
    • 1909
    • mapped 47 areas
  59. Economo:
    • 1929
    • mapped 97 areas
