Parts of the Brain and Their Functions. Cerebrum. The cerebrum is the largest portion of the brain, and contains tools which are responsible for most of the brain’s function. It is divided into four sections: the temporal lobe, the occipital lobe, parietal lobe and frontal lobe.
The outer parts control the more emotional and thought based functions. While the inner and lower parts of the brain control simpler and more basic functions like breathing and blood pressure. Now we will take a trip through the different human brain parts, exploring their function.
Although each structure has a distinct function, they work together to control all functions of the body. The brain is made up of 3 essential parts: Cerebrum, Cerebellum, and Brainstem. The cerebrum is the largest part of the human brain. It has a rough surface (cerebral cortex) with gyri and sulci.
