Temporal lobes
1 Connections of the temporal cortex
1.1 Afferent projections from sensory systems
1.2 Efferent projections to the parietal and frontal association regions, limbic system and basal ganglia
1.3 Left and right connected via
1.3.1 Corpus callosum
1.3.2 Anterior commissure
2 Temporal lobe function
2.1 Processing auditory input
2.2 Visual object recognition
2.3 Long term storage of information
2.4 Sensory processes
2.4.1 Identification and categorization of stimuli
2.4.2 Cross modal matching
2.5 Affective responses
2.5.1 Emotional response is associated with a particular stimulus
2.6 Spatial navigation
2.6.1 Hippocampus
3 STS and biological motion
3.1 Imaging research reveals activation in the STS during perception of biological motion
3.1.1 Hassan et al
3.1.2 Thatcher illusion
3.1.3 Split faces test
4 Asymmetry of temporal lobe function
4.1 Left temporal lobe
4.1.1 Verbal memory
4.1.2 Speech processing
4.2 Right temporal lobe
4.2.1 Non verbal memory
4.2.2 Musical processing
4.2.3 Facial processing
5 Symptoms of temporal lobe lesions
5.1 Auditory disturbance
5.2 Disorders of music perception
5.3 Disturbance of selection of visual and auditory input
5.4 Impaired organization and categorization
5.5 Inability to use contextual information
5.6 Altered personality and affective behaviour
5.7 Altered sexual behaviour
5.8 Dierks et al.
6 Disorders of auditory and speech perception
6.1 Cortical deafness
6.1.1 Absence of neural activity in the auditory regions
6.1.2 Auditory hallucinations
6.1.3 Impaired auditory processing Have trouble discriminating speech sounds
6.1.4 Speech disorders Wernicke's aphasia Disturbed recognition of words
7 Disorders of visual perception
7.1 Patients with temporal lobe damage are impaired at object recognition, complex pattern recognition
7.2 Right temporal lobe lesions lead to abnormal face perception and biological motion recognition
8 Disturbance of selection of visual and auditory input
8.1 Selective attention to auditory input is impaired in patients with temporal lobe damage and can be tested with dichotic listening
8.2 Damage to the left temporal lobe impairs recall of visual stimuli in the right visual field
8.3 Damage to the right temporal lobe impairs recall of visual stimuli in both visual fields.
8.4 Organization and categorization
8.4.1 Left temporal lobe lobectomies lead to impairment in the ability to categorize words/pictures/objects Posterior lesions lead to a difficulty in recognizing specific word categories
9 Memory
9.1 Antereograde amnesia
9.1.1 Amnesia for events after bilateral removal of the medial temporal lobes
9.2 Inferotemporal cortex
9.2.1 Conscious recall of information
9.3 Left temporal lobe
9.3.1 Verbal memory
9.4 Right temporal lobe
9.4.1 Impaired recall of nonverbal material
10 Affect and personality
10.1 Stimulation of anterior and medial temporal cortex produces feelings of fear
10.2 Temporal lobe personality
10.2.1 Personality that overemphasizes trivia and petty details of life
10.2.2 Pedantic speech
10.2.3 Egocentricity
10.2.4 Perseveration
10.2.5 Paranoia
10.2.6 Preoccupation with religion
10.2.7 Prone to aggression
