Flashcard Content Overview

How much do you know about the brain in your head? Would you like to know it's most basic parts and their primary functions? While this memorization might seem a daunting task, some simple mnemonic devices or acronyms can make that process much easier. This set of flashcards outlines the parts of the human brain and their basic functionalities. The set lumps the parts of the brain into 3 distinct groups. The Limbic System, the oldest parts of the brain, and the lobes of the Cerebral Cortex. Each of those three groupings contain several individual sections and their functions.
