How the brain is organized?
The four lobes (frontal, temporal, parietal and occipital) of the brain are each responsible for different functions of the body. The right and left hemispheres of the brain control opposite sides of the body. Sensory information travels up to the brain via the spinal cord where it is processed. The thalamus relays this sensory information (except smell) to the cerebral cortex, this information is then send to different parts of the brain. When sensory information gets process a motor response is given to specific body parts.
