Somatosensory Function and The Parietal Lobe
- 105k Downloads
The parietal lobe is composed of- post central gyrus, superior and inferior parietal lobules. Each area will be considered in terms of cytoarchitecture and functions. For the superior and inferior parietal lobules, the different effects of disease processes in the dominant compared to nondominant hemispheres will be considered. The major sensory pathways have already been covered in chapters’ 7-spinal cord, 11- brain stem and 15- diencephalon. The student may wish to review that material at this time.
