When you engage in a conversation with someone, your temporal lobe is working to make sense of all the different sounds and pitches being transmitted from the ears.
There are two special structures that are typically found on the left temporal lobe. These two structures are Wernicke’s Area and Broca’s Area.
Wernicke’s Area is associated with understanding and processing of speech.
Broca’s Area is associated with the production of speech.
Together these two structures help with our communication.
So next time you are talking to someone or listening to music, you can thank your temporal lobe for interpreting the information.
