Functional Area’s Of the Brain

The area of brain tissue damaged by a stroke or traumatic injury will effect the survivor in certain ways:

FRONTAL LOBES – Planning/organising, problem solving, personality & behavioural control.

PARIETAL LOBES – Processing sensations, e.g touch, temperature or pain. Perception.

OCCIPITAL LOBE – Processing visual information from eyes.

CEREBELLUM – Coordinating smooth movement, balance & muscle coordination.

BRAIN STEM – Basic functions of life: Breathing, heart rate, blood pressure.

TEMPORAL LOBE – Memory, understanding & language e.g sounds, smells, pictures & faces, words & names.

Knowledge on the functional area’s of the brain can provide a better understanding of the individuals limitations and how best to help them make improvements.

As an independant ARNI (Action for Rehabilitation from Neurological Injury) trainer, I offer an option for stroke survivors that have been discharged from hospital, or other healthcare, that want to continue their stroke recovery.

    Definitely consider that which you stated. Your favourite reason appeared to be at the internet the simplest factor to
    take into accout of. I say to you, I definitely get annoyed whilst other
    folks think about issues that they just don’t understand about.
    You managed to hit the nail upon the highest and outlined out the entire thing without having side-effects ,
    other people can take a signal. Will probably be back to get more.
