Description

The largest part of the brain and is composed of right and left hemispheres CEREBRUM
Located under the cerebrum CEREBELLUM
connects the cerebrum and cerebellum to the spinal cord BRAINSTEM
It is in charge of personality, behavior, and emotions. It also involves speech FRONTAL LOBE
It is in charge of sense of touch and pain PARIETAL LOBE
It is in charge of interpreting vision OCCIPITAL LOBE
It is in charge of hearing, memory, and understanding language TEMPORAL LOBE
It plays a role in controlling behaviors such as hunger, thirst, sleep, and emotions HYPOTHALAMUS
It secretes hormones that control sexual development and promotes bone and muscle growth PITUITARY GLAND
Helps regulate the bodys internal clock and circadian rhythms by secreting melatonin PINEAL GLAND
Plays a role in pain sensation, attention, alertness, and memory THALAMUS
Works with the cerebellum to coordinate fine motions, like fingertip movements BASAL GANGLIA
If this area is damaged, you may have difficulty moving the tongue or facial muscles to produce the sounds of speech BROCAS AREA
If damaged you may speak long sentences that have no meaning WERNICKES AREA

Cognition Crossword

Type
Crossword
Description

the persistence of learning over time through the storage and retrieval of information memory
the processing of information into the memory system-for example, by extracting meaning encoding
the retention of encoded information over time storage
the process of getting information out of memory storage retrieval
the immediate, very brief recording of sensory information in the memory system sensory memory
activated memory that holds a few items briefly, such as the seven digits of a phone number while dialing, before the information is stored or forgotten short-term memory

a newer understanding of short-term memory that focuses on conscious, active processing of incoming auditory and visual-spatial information, and of information retrieved from long-term memory working memory
the processing of many aspects of a problem simultaneously; the brain's natural mode of information processing for many functions, including vision. Contrasts with the step-by-step (serial) processing of most computers and of conscious problem solving parallel processing
unconscious encoding of incidental information, such as space, time, and frequency, and of well-learned information, such as word meanings automatic processing
encoding that requires attention and conscious effort effortful processing
the conscious repetition of information, either to maintain it in consciousness or to encode it for storage rehearsal
the tendency for distributed study or practice to yield better long-term retention than is achieved through massed study or practice spacing effect
our tendency to recall best the last and first items in a list serial position effect
the encoding of picture images visual encoding
the encoding of sound, especially the sound of words acoustic encoding
the encoding of meaning, including the meaning of words semantic encoding
mental pictures; a powerful aid to effortful processing, especially when combined with semantic encoding imagery

organizing items into familiar, manageable units; often occurs automatically chunking
a momentary sensory memory of visual stimuli; a photographic or picture-image memory lasting no more than a few tenths of a second iconic memory
a momentary sensory memory of auditory stimuli; if attention is elsewhere, sounds and words can still be recalled within 3 or 4 seconds echoic memory
an increase in a synapse's firing potential after brief, rapid stimulation. Believed to be a neural basis for learning and memory long-term potentiation
a clear memory of an emotionally significant moment or event flashbulb memory
the loss of memory amnesia
retention independent of conscious recollection. (Also called nondeclarative or procedural memory.) implicit memory
memory of facts and experiences that one can consciously know and " declare." (Also called declarative memory.) explicit memory
a neural center that is located in the limbic system; helps process explicit memories for storage hippocampus
