Take a look at the brain below. What’s the name of the lobe in green with the big red question mark?
Except for people who believe in Big Foot, ghosts, and that George Bush planned and executed 9/11, living without a brain is impossible. Living with a damaged brain is possible but there can be many, many problems. The left temporal lobe is the home of Wernicke’s area, a region associated with language comprehension problems if damaged. Also on the left-hand side of the brain is Broca’s area, associated with expressive speech problems. Left-sided injuries to the brain are often the reason for calling in a Speech and Language therapist.
