Frontal Lobe


The frontal lobe is located in front of the central sulcus (Chudler, 1996-2011). The central sulcus is a deep cleft in each hemisphere that separates the frontal lobe from the parietal lobe (Free Dictionary, 2012). This lobe deals with reason, planning, parts of speech and movements of the motor cortex, emotions, and problem solving (Chudler, 1996-2011). The motor cortex is an area that describes the regions of the cerebral cortex involved with planning, control, and execution of voluntary movements (Wikipedia, 2012). The frontal lobe can also plan ahead, monitor, have sustained attention, have goal oriented behaviors, and working memory. This lobe could also control the other side of the body (NeuroHabits, 2011). The frontal lobe can succumb to epilepsy. Its called frontal lobe epilepsy or FLE. The symptoms can vary between motor, emotional, and cognitive issues. This type of epilepsy can be difficult to diagnose (Gitelman, 2012). In the end, the frontal lobe is in the anterior of the brain which is above the eye sockets, and this lobe is the last part of the brain to mature developmentally (Yahoo Answers, 2012).Can virtues such as courage lead one to act wrongly?
