Psychology -> Cerebral hemispheres: parietal lobe

Parietal lobe

This lobe is located just above the occipital lobe. The principal sensory function of the parietal lobe is somatosensory perception,where bodily sensations are registered. The lower parts of the parietal lobe are concerned with visually and acoustically related functions. The parietal lobe is also very important in our perception of space and in monitoring the body's position in space.

Damage to the left parietal lobe can result in alexia, the loss of the ability to read, or agraphia, the loss of the ability to write. A person's ability to draw is also impaired when the parietal lobe is damaged.
