Keeping this in consideration, what are the two cerebral hemispheres?
The vertebrate cerebrum (brain) is formed by two cerebral hemispheres that are separated by a groove, the longitudinal fissure. The brain can thus be described as being divided into left and right cerebral hemispheres.
what are the 4 lobes and their functions? Each side of your brain contains four lobes. The frontal lobe is important for cognitive functions and control of voluntary movement or activity. The parietal lobe processes information about temperature, taste, touch and movement, while the occipital lobe is primarily responsible for vision.
Keeping this in consideration, what do the cerebral hemispheres do?
The cerebral hemispheres are the highest level of the Central Nervous System. They are like two mushroom caps bulging of the left and right front end of the brain stem, as shown in Figure 1 at the right. They control the activity of the lower levels, directing the overall plan and direction of behavior.
What is the right cerebral hemisphere?
The right cerebral hemisphere controls movement of the left side of the body. Depending on the severity, a stroke affecting the right cerebral hemisphere may result in functional loss or motor skill impairment of the left side of the body.
