Brain Basics

Description

Do you know where different parts of the brain are and how they function? Do you know your sensory cortex from your motor cortex? This short film has the answers.

Renowned neurosurgeon Professor Hugh Coakham gives a clear and insightful lecture about the brain with the help of animated graphics and simple examples.

Although the brain is a single organ, different areas fulfil different functions. A 3D animation of the brain maps out the following different areas:

  • Motor Cortex
  • Sensory Cortex
  • Sensory Association Cortex
  • Visual Area
  • Temporal Lobe
  • Broca's Speech Area
  • Frontal Lobe
  • Motor Association Cortex
