As we learned, the frontal lobes is located right behind our foreheads. The frontal lobes are responsible for any movements, judgment, planning or usage of memory. If this part of the brain is lost, it can cause many problems with one’s character, memorization and even maturity. Below, you will find a diagram of different stages, one’s brain undergoes as they age. I found this picture interesting, because personality my grandmother is a victim of Alzheimer’s. As we look at the photo, you can see that in the “normal” example, all the components of the cerebral cortex are full and well. The next stage, being the “mild cognitive impairment” shows the cerebral decaying little by little (changing). In the final stage “Alzheimer’s as you can see, the brain starts to lose most of it’s components, and a “black” hole of emptiness is created. After viewing this visual and learning about the different parts of the brain in class, I now have a better understanding of why my grandmother, cannot recognize or acknowledge anything I tell her.
