Example text

Damage in the area of the angular gyrus in the dominant left hemisphere may cause word-finding problems (anomia), reading and writing deficits (alexia with agraphia), as well as left-right disorientation, finger agnosia (inability to identify the fingers), and difficulty with arithmetic (acalculia). The postcentral gyrus (somatosensory cortex) is a primary cortical area, whereas the majority of the remaining parietal lobe cortex is composed of association cortex, mostly concerned with somatosensory and visual association function.

When these mechanisms are underdeveloped or disrupted by disease or injury, speech, swallowing, hearing, and/or language deficits as well as cognitive deficits may occur. It is important as a practitioner to know the location in the cerebral hemispheres of the primary areas and to know the key processing functions thought to be associated with each of the principal lobes. , temporal lobe = Heschl’s gyrus, Wernicke’s area, hearing, a­ uditory comprehension). Frontal Lobe The frontal lobe is bounded anteriorly by the lateral sulcus, or sylvian fissure, and posteriorly by the central sulcus, or rolandic fissure.

This gyrus lies directly posterior to the central sulcus, or rolandic fissure. On this sensory cortex can be mapped the sensory control of various parts of the body. , pain, temperature, touch) are sent to the sensory cortex from the opposite side of the body. This arrangement is a mirror image of the motor strip (see Fig. 2-7). Two gyri in the parietal lobe are important to locate and become familiar with in regard to language. The first is the supramarginal gyrus (area 40), which curves around the posterior end of the lateral sylvian fissure.
