Lobes of the brain
The lobes of the brain were originally a purely anatomical classification, but has been shown to also be related to different brain functions. The telencephalon, the largest portion of the human brain, is divided into lobes but so is also the cerebellum. If not specified, the expression lobes of the brain refers to the telencepahlon.
Additional recommended knowledge
There are four uncontested lobes of the telencepahlon (see individual articles for more information):
Each of the four or five lobes of the telencephalon is divided in half making the left and right cerebral hemispheres. The two hemispheres are connected with matter called the corpus callosum which allows to two lobes to communicate information to each other. It is the left hemisphere which receives and sends information to the right side of the body, and the right hemisphere which deals with the left side of the body.
