Connecting the two hemispheres of the brain is a band of nerve fibers known as the Corpus Callosum. Furthermore, on the back end of the brain is a region known as the Frontal lobe. This is where the majority of our personality is housed, and gives us capacity for emotional and abstract thought. Two very important areas in this region are the Motor cortex (which houses the motor neurons, which in turns control the movement of our body) and the Broca’s areas (which gives us the ability to control our mouths and create speech). In addition, there are the Parietal lobes, which houses the Sensory cortex (which controls our sensory neurons, which allows us to feel sensations). In the back of the brain there is the occidental lobe which receives input from the eyes to create vision for individuals.
