Lecture´s Description

Physiological Anatomy
In this lecture ´´Cerebral Cortex: Intellectual Functions´´ is explained. Section one is about ´´Physiological Anatomy´´. Earlier in this section, the functional part of cerebral cortex is explained. After that neuronal surface of cerebral cortex: histological structure is discussed. Then layers of cerebral cortex are illustrated. The discussion continues on anatomical and functional relations of cerebral cortex. In the end, the thalamocortical system is presented.


Specific Cortical Areas’ Function
Section two is about ‘’Specific Cortical Areas’ Function’’. At first, educator highlights the Specific Functional Areas. Then tells the locations of major association areas. Following this, Association Areas are discussed. Likewise, parieto-occipitotemporal association areas are pursued. Prefrontal association area is focused later on. Moreover, Broca’s area comes under consideration along with limbic association area. After that areas for recognition of faces are discussed. The last slide of this section presents Wernicke’s area.


Dominant Hemisphere
Section three is about ‘’Dominant Hemisphere’’. First few slides of this section give concept of the dominant hemisphere. This is followed by explanation of higher intellectual functions of prefrontal association areas. After that Role of Language in Function of Wernicke’s Area is discussed. Then decreased aggressiveness and inappropriate social responses are elaborated. Lastly, concepts of working memory are highlighted.


Corpus Callosum and Anterior Commissure
Section four is about ‘’Corpus Callosum and Anterior Commissure’’. In the beginning, function of corpus callosum and anterior commissure are reported. After that hemispheric lateralization is thoroughly explained. Educator's next focus is the Lesion of Cerebral Cortex.


Thoughts, Consciousness and Memory
Section five is about ‘’Thoughts, Consciousness and Memory’’. Educator gives an overview of thoughts, consciousness and memory. Then memory is discussed in detail along with its classification. This is followed by elucidation of short term memory, intermediate long-term memory, and long-term memory. Furthermore, information about consolidation of memory is revealed. Finally, educator tells that hippocampus promotes storage of memory.
