Function of the Temporal Lobe

Each section of the brain controls different functions. The temporal lobe itself is divided into two sections, the left temporal lobe and the right temporal lobe, and includes the amygdala, hippocampus and olfactory cortex.

The main functions of the left temporal lobe include memory, language, reading comprehension, emotional stability, and sensory input. The right temporal lobe regulates functions relating to speech, comprehending music, experiencing extreme emotions, and remembering songs, music or art.

Symptoms of a Temporal Lobe Injury

Temporal lobe injuries can be caused by a wide variety of personal injury accidents, such as car accidents or workplace accidents.

Signs and symptoms of this type of injury can include:

  • Difficulty or inability to recognize common words
  • Decreased or inhibited speech perception
  • Long-term or short-term memory loss
  • Inability to recognize faces, art, music, or other similar things

Severe temporal lobe injuries can cause seizures and even lead to extreme changes in a person's personality and sexual behavior.
