1. What are the functions of each of these different lobes (i.e., frontal lobes, parietal lobes, occipital lobes, and temporal lobes)?

Interestingly, some authors refer to these functions as the geography of thought (See diagram attached with each section numbered). Each cerebral hemisphere can be divided into sections, or lobes, each of which specializes in different functions.

TWO FRONTAL lOBES

To understand each lobe and its specialty we will take a tour of the cerebral hemispheres, starting with the two frontal lobes (3), which lie directly behind the forehead. When you plan a schedule, imagine the future, or use reasoned ...

Solution Summary

The functions of the specific lobes in the Cerebral Hemisphere of the brain are explained through real life examples. This solution also includes an illustrative diagram pointing out the location of each section by number.
