Term: Frontal Lobes
Definition (Myers): the portion of the cerebral cortex lying just behind the forehead; involved in speaking and muscle movements and in making plans and judgements
Definition (alternative): The frontal lobes are considered our emotional control center and home to our personality. There is no other part of the brain where lesions can cause such a wide variety of symptoms (Kolb & Wishaw, 1990). The frontal lobes are involved in motor function, problem solving, spontaneity, memory, language, initiation, judgement, impulse control, and social and sexual behavior. (Centre for Neuro Skills)
Contextual explanation: In another words, frontal lobes creates our personality and judgements. It determines how we behave and allow us to judge what's right and wrong, as well as other necessities, such as language and muscle movements. People who lack frontal lobes development usually tend to have higher risk of commiting crimes. Their judgements is not well-developed, therefore, these people tend to commit more crimes than normal people.
