In this video, Leslie Samuel talks about the regions within the parietal lobe and how they function. The parietal lobe is involved in perceiving and processing somatosensory events like touch, temperature, body position and pain. It also receives input from the visual and auditory cortices and contains the Wernicke's area, which is involved in understanding spoken language.
