Example text

Certain functions of the central nervous system localize within each lobe of the brain; those gross localizations of specific functions will be discussed in our anatomic survey [9–11]. The Cerebral Hemispheres 21 Fig. 18 Lobes of the brain and functional localizations. Lateral (in (a)) and medial (in (b)) views of the brain show the frontal, parietal, temporal, and occipital lobes. Superimposed on these regions are the important functional regions of the brain related to motor activity, sensory activity, hearing, speech, vision, and memory The brain consists of two paired cerebral hemispheres, each a mirror image of the opposing side.

A simple axial image that includes the frontal horns of the lateral ventricles, the temporal lobes, and the occipital lobes of the brain is demonstrated in (a) at 9 day old, (b) at 5 years of age, (c) at 45 years of age, and (d) at 75 years of age. Note the general slow loss of brain substance with increasing prominence of the sulci, the Sylvian fissures, and the size of the ventricles Fig. 30 MR of normal brain at two different ages. At 1 month of age: (a) A sagittal T1 and (b) an axial T2 image; and at 4 years of age: (c) a sagittal T1, and (d) an axial T2 image.

26 MR of the normal cerebrum. Sagittal T1-weighted images: (a) through the midline and (b) laterally through the Sylvian fissure and temporal lobe (legends as in Fig. 21) Fig. 27 Ultrasound (US) of the normal cerebrum. Coronal images through the anterior fontanelle: (a) frontal lobes, (b) anterior aspect of the temporal lobes and anterior horn of lateral ventricle, (c) brainstem, and (d) oblique axial/ coronal image through body of lateral ventricle (legends as in Fig. 21) Fig. 28 US of the normal cerebrum.
