Occipital lobe

Explore the functions and disorders associated with the occipital lobe, the part of the brain responsible for visual processing. Learn how to keep your occipital lobe healthy and functioning optimally.

The temporal lobe, located on either side of the brain, plays a key role in processing auditory information, memory formation, language comprehension, and some aspects of emotion and speech production. It houses structures like the hippocampus, crucial for long-term memory, and the primary auditory cortex, essential for interpreting sounds.

The brain and it's lobes by Anatomy.app Lobes Of The Brain, Parietal Lobe, Temporal Lobe, Brain Lobes, Brain Diagram, Biology Diagrams, Brain Models, Occipital Lobe, Brain Images

The human brain consists of four lobes - frontal lobe, parietal lobe, temporal lobe, occipital lobe. The frontal and temporal regions of each hemisphere are each composed of 3 horizontal gyri; the parietal lobe consists of 2 lobules (quadrangular superior lobule and inferior lobule consisting of 2 semicircular gyri), the occipital region is composed of 3 irregular, less defined gyri that converge toward the occipital pole.
