    The Brain is a highly complex organ that serves as the functional center of the Nervous System. The Brain has been estimated to consists of anywhere between 50 billion to 100 billion Neurons.
    This textbook will explore several different mappings and distinctions of neuronal functioning of the Brain. In our pursuit to better understand the Brain, we have identified various structures, sub cortical structures, regions, and hemispheres of the Brain.

    Boundaries and Boarders
    Although Psychology is a creative science, it is limited by two factors: Biology and Culture. Culture influences what behaviors are considered appropriate, which can differ greatly across different groups of people and settings. It is important to note that Culture can be "descriptive" and "prescriptive" at times. It can be descriptive in that it describes how groups of people behave; however, it can also be prescriptive in that it can dictate how one should behave and may also serve to establish what is right, wrong, or inappropriate. Cross-Cultural Psychology is a hybrid discipline that evolved from the obvious similarities between Psychology and Anthropology. Many researchers today, including that of Margaret Mead and Ruth Benedict, refer to their selves as Psychological Anthropologist. Their research focuses on how Culture impacts human Behavior.

    Localization of Function – is the notion that mental or neuronal processes are localized to particular parts of the Brain. This concept exist on a continuum, as some processes may be extremely localized while others may be dispersed across different regions, systems, or structures. This textbook will explore several different mappings and distinctions of neuronal functioning. I must caution the reader that this notion is heavily debated, has theoretical roots, and an obvious pedagogical intent. Evidence against the strict notion that Brain functioning is isolated to particular parts of the Brain has been found and will continue to grow.

    The last major component of the Forebrain discussed here is the Cerebral Cortex, which consists of four lobes that surround the hind and mid portions of the brain. The lobes are responsible for many of the functions that are uniquely human and that contribute to the quality of life that we often take for granted. Starting from the forehead and going over and under the rest of one’s head the following lobes will be encountered: the Frontal Lobes, the Parietal Lobes, the Occipital Lobes, and Temporal Lobes

    Language functioning provides a great example of this. For most individuals, there are always exceptions, grammar and vocabulary (skill sets greatly interrelated with language functioning) are localized to the left hemisphere of the Brain. On the other hand, understanding the emotional content of language is a function of the right hemisphere (Alleydog).
