  1. Frontal lobe - primary function - 4
    • Motor control of voluntary movements
    • Motor planning
    • Language production - motor production - Broca’s area
    • Emotions & judgement
  2. Frontal lobe - damage to it leads to what? - 3
    • Nonfluent aphasia
    • CONTRA paralysis
    • Apraxia - motor planning
  3. Parietal lobe - primary function - 1
    • Sensory interpretation:
    • Pain
    • T
    • Touch
    • Proprioception
  4. Parietal lobe - damage to it leads to what? - 2
    • Tactile agnosia
    • Loss of CONTRA stimulus location & intensity
  5. Temporal lobe - primary function - 2
    • Language comprehension - Wernecke’s area
    • Auditory cortex
  6. Temporal lobe - damage to it leads to what? - 2
    • Fluent aphasia
    • Hearing loss
  7. Occipital lobe - primary function - 1
    Vision
  8. Occipital lobe - damage to it leads to what? - 3
    • CONTRA homonymous hemianopsia
    • Vision impaired
    • Visual agnosia
  9. Brainstem - made up of what parts? - 3
    • Midbrain
    • Pons
    • Medulla oblongata
  10. Midbrain - primary function - 3
    • Coordination
    • Visual reflexes
    • Auditory reflexes
  11. Pons - primary function - 8
    • Modulating pain
    • Controlling arousal
    • Hearing
    • Equilibrium
    • Taste
    • Eye movement
    • Facial expressions, facial sensation
    • Sleep
  12. Medulla oblongata - primary function - 3
    • Vasomotor center:
    • Cardiac
    • Respiratory
    • Vasomotor - BP
  13. Basal ganglia - primary function - 3
    • Voluntary movement:
    • Scale amplitude
    • Velocity of movement
    • Anticipatory movement
  14. Damage to basal ganglia - problems w/what? - 3
    • Motor planning
    • Scaling of movements
    • Postures
    • Ex: PD
  15. Cerebellum - primary function - 3
    • Equilibrium - balance
    • Posture
    • Coordination - force, direction & sequencing of voluntary movement
  16. Damage to cerebellum - what is seen? - 3
    • Dyssynergia
    • Dysmetria
    • Dysdiodokinesia
    • Movement decomposition is velocity dependent - w/greater disturbances in movement control at higher speeds
  17. Werneckes Aphasia - damage where?
    Temporal lobe
  18. Broca’s Aphasia - damage where?
    Frontal lobe
  19. Wernecke’s aphasia - do what?
    Gesture
  20. Wernecke’s aphasia - aka - 2
    • Fluent
    • Receptive
  21. Broca’s aphasia - do what?
    Verbal cues
  22. Broca’s aphasia - aka - 3
    • Non-fluent
    • Expressive
    • Motor
  23. Wernecke's aphasia - 2 other names; loss of what; can do what; PT
    • Fluent or Receptive (bc can speak)
    • Spontaneous speech is preserved - Able to speak
    • Auditory comprehension impaired - written or spoken form
    • PT - Gestures
  24. Fluent aphasia - PT strategy; why
    • Demonstrate & gesture
    • Spontaneous speech is preserved & flows smoothly
    • Auditor comprehension is impaired
  25. Broaca's aphasia - 2 other names; loss of what; can do what; PT
    • Non-fluent or Expressive
    • Loss of ability to produce language (spoken or written)
    • Able to understand
    • PT - "yes" or "no" responses
  26. Receptive or Non-fluent aphasia - PT strategy; why
    • Verbal cues
    • Understanding of verbal cues is intact but motor production is impaired
