One of the four primary lobes, or divisions, of the cerebral hemispheres (the others being the frontal lobe, parietal lobe and occipital lobe), it is located behind the temple of the cranium. It has tight reciprocal links (especially in the right hemisphere) with the limbic system that presumably give rise to its involvement in emotions. It is also involved in hearing and memory and the senses of time and individual identity. See text, Chapter 4. See also, "brain," "cerebrum," "corpus callosum," "cortex" and "limbic system."
The lobe of the cerebrum located lateral and below the frontal and occipital lobes. This area controls auditory receptive and our ability to process and understand the meaning of the verbal message and our memory functions. (Part of the cerebral hemisphere)
