Five lobes of the brain have we evolved All doing different jobs but all intervolved. And all these lobes, just mm thick But still so unique and they do the trick. This layer, as thin as can be Cell bodies, gray matter in both you and me. All the lobes does a number of things And to the table each will bring Some special function not shared at all And each function is nothing small. The frontal lobe deals with movement Having fun or paying the rent. Anterior to the central sulcus The primary motor cortex, homunculus. And on it the body pattern distorted With motor efferent numbers reported. On the opposite end is the occipital lobe And for magazines is the vogue. For vision here is processed such That colors we see are so much Trichromatic we’re called because we see three Blue, green and red, the cones we can see. The temporal lobe is on the side And its importance we will not slide. The auditory cortex on this region Has a map of each audition. Different frequencies along a line That allow our hearing to be sublime. And this tonotopic map, just to make it more fun, Is exactly the same in everyone. Olfaction is also found on this part The last stop for smell, quite far from the start. The only sense that isn’t modified And gets to the brain without being tried. Under the temporal hidden from view A lobe of importance you should not skew. It is the center for pain and taste. Life without flavor, what a waste. And of course pain, not to be ignored Never builds up, never gets ignored. Last the parietal, a very odd place The association cortex coordinating space. This is where you first perceive touch And the ability you have is much. The sensory afferents that lead there All must need to share The area behind the sulcus central Allows you to feel your dog, your best pal. And the homunculus there functions the same But this one has sensory function for fame. Sensory afferents taking up space So you can have feelings all over your face.
