Why not call them left frontal lobe etc.? So get 10 lobes.[edit]

~curious

They are called left/right. But the left half doesn't count as a separate lobe from the right, so there's only 5. Also: Please sign your name using four tildes ~~~~ when making your posts. I would also suggest that you get an account for yourself. --M1ss1ontomars2k4 | T | C | @ 00:16, 21 May 2006 (UTC)


Brain Diagram[edit]

im not sure if its only my computer, but i see the Parietal Lobe and the Occipital Lobe having the same yellow color even though the legend says the Parietal should be orange. (Antonio.sierra 23:18, 22 January 2007 (UTC))

The nursing and medical texts refer to Right and Left Hemispheres of the brain. It would be nice to have that illustration included in the lobe content, to see what attributes are affected with Right or Left sided CVA (stroke).Blessings of health to Everyone!Ksabot 20:28, 26 January 2007 (UTC)Karina

Error in diagram of brain lobes[edit]

While viewing a Wikipedia page, I came across an error. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/lobes_of_the_brain is the webpage which contains the error. The diagam displaying the lobes of the brain labels the temporal lobe where the parietal lobe should be and the parietal lobe where the temporal lobe should be. A diagram that is correct should show that the temporal lobe is found on the left side of the brain behind the frontal lobe (cerebrum) and the parietal lobe is found on the right side of the brain behind the frontal lobe.

Number of brain lobes[edit]

It's really accepted that the brain has four lobes?. Its frequently found in books but I think we could take in consideration that The International Federation of Associations of Anatomists (IFAA) divides the brain or much better, describes six lobes. Wikipedia also has entries for 6 lobes. Gcastellanos (talk) 14:19, 9 November 2012 (UTC)

I updated the article listing 6 lobes. Standard(?) number of brain lobes are differed from time to time. Briefly historical difference is as follows.
  • (1854) 5 lobes (Louis Pierre Gratiolet). Frontal, temporal, parietal, occipital, insula.
  • (1895) 4 lobes (Basle Nomina Anatomica). Frontal, temporal, parietal, occipital.
  • (1975) 5 lobes (Nomina Anatomica 4th edition). Insula added.
  • (1998) 6 lobes (Terminologia Anatomica). Limbic added.
I wrote its historical details at Japanese Wikipedia(google trans) 2 years ago. But I did not write that here, because I am not good at English. What I read at that time is PMID 17077641 and PMID 20121437. I want somebody who is good at English writing details in English. thanks.--Was a bee (talk) 00:55, 11 November 2012 (UTC)

Lobes of the brain/lobes of the cerebral cortex[edit]

This article seems to be describing how the brain is divided into lobes. If I'm not mistaken the division into lobes is usually specified to the cortex, thus being an areal division rather than a volumetric division. Is this not correct?

If it is I would suggest modifying the article to avoid confusion. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 213.21.77.171 (talk) 19:48, 17 November 2012 (UTC)
