Response messages are then passed from the brain through the spinal cord and to the rest of the body.
Frontal :Motor areas for voluntary body movements
Parietal: Somatosensory – interprets sensations
Temporal: Auditory – interprets sounds
Occipital: Interprets what a person sees
Cerebellum: Part of the brain that controls balance and body motion
