Introduction to Neurobiology

In this course we are learning the sensory and motor system of the brain and attempting to understand the functional ramifications of physical layout.  Here’s a picture of the brain:

A view of a human brain, lateral aspect, left is rostral/anterior. Pin 64: Primary motor cortex in the Frontal Lobe. Pin 63: Central Sulcus marking the division between the Parietal and Frontal Lobes. Pin 43: Primary Somatosensory Cortex in Parietal Lobe. Pin 81: Primary Visual Cortex in the Occipital Lobe. Pin 23: Temporal Lobe, named for proximity to Temporal Bone which is named due to proximity of region where humans often first present gray hair, a sign of aging and the passage of time. Pin 30: Primary Auditory Cortex (within Lateral Sulcus) in Temporal Lobe.
