These lobes each are divided further into regions which have individual and unique functions. The frontal lobe and Temporal lobes are both involved in affecting behavior in different ways. The frontal lobe is involved with control of movement, while the temporal lobe is the primary spot for auditory processing and high level visual processing.The Frontal lobe contains several regions known as the prefrontal cortex, the orbitofrontal cortex, the primary motor cortex, and the premotor cortex. Each region of the frontal lobe handles different functions.
