Correct Answer - Option 1 : Occipital

The correct answer is Occipital.

  • The occipital lobe is the visual processing area of the brain.
  • It is associated with visuospatial processing, distance and depth perception, colour determination, object and face recognition, and memory formation
  • Each side of your brain contains four lobes.
  • The frontal lobe is important for cognitive functions and control of voluntary movement or activity.
  • The parietal lobe processes information about temperature, taste, touch, and movement, while the occipital lobe is primarily responsible for vision.

  • The temporal lobes are also believed to play an important role in processing affect/emotions, language, and certain aspects of visual perception.
  • The frontal lobe is the part of the brain that controls important cognitive skills in humans, such as emotional expression, problem-solving, memory, language, judgment, and sexual behaviours.
  • The parietal lobe is one of the major lobes in the brain, roughly located at the upper back area in the skull.
