Fairfield Child Care: Your Child’s Brain and its Functions

Posted on 12-05-2014


Parents understand the importance of the human brain and its development early in life. Your child’s brain controls how the body functions and controls emotions and social interactions. Different parts of your child’s brain are activated depending on the situation, and the brain is constantly working to allow your child to observe and interact with everything in the environment. The brain’s cerebral cortex has four lobes with various folds, which do not develop at the same time. Therefore, there are optimal stages for learning and development. Below is a brief look at each lobe and some of the functions.

Frontal lobe

When it comes to brain development, the frontal lobe is the last part of the brain to mature and develop, and it is located in the front of the brain. This area is responsible for controlling conscious thought including creative thought, abstract thinking, problem solving, judgment and behavior.

Temporal lobe

The temporal lobe is located near the bottom of the brain. This lobe is responsible for controlling the senses of smell and sound, and for processing complex functions such as recognizing faces or scenery. It also controls language and memories.

Parietal Lobe

The parietal lobe is located in the middle of the brain, between the Frontal Lobe and the Occipital Lobe. This area controls sensory information such as pain and touch, and it controls visual functions.

Occipital Lobe

The occipital lobe is located near the back of the head. This part of the brain is largely responsible for controlling the sense of sight and visual capacity.
