Clinically, four types of presentation may be distinguished. First, an acute loss of focal cerebral function with symptoms lasting less than 24 hours is referred to as a transient ischaemic attack (TIA), resulting from embolic or thrombic vascular disease.

Anterior to the hippocampus is the amygdala, which receives inputs from the olfactory tract and is involved in the conscious perception of smell and emotion. Parietal Lobe The boundaries of the parietal lobe include the frontal lobe anteriorly, the temporal lobe inferiorly and the occipital lobe posteriorly. The anterior part is the postcentral gyrus that runs parallel to the central sulcus and contains the primary somatosensory cortex. As with the primary motor cortex, the somatosensory cortex contains an inverted, somatotopic representation of the contralateral half of the body.

The human brain contains about 10 11 neurons, each with the potential to contact at least 10,000 other neurons: an immense amount of processing power! Although neurons come in many shapes and sizes, within the CNS they can be divided functionally into three broad classes. Neurons that convey sensory information from the periphery are called afferent or sensory neurons. Motor neurons convey commands to the muscles and glands. The most abundant neurons are the interneurons, and they either process information locally or send information from one centre of specialization to another.
