Image:Brain Activity / Consciousness

Description: An illustration of brain activity, showing activity in the frontal and temporal lobes. These are the areas associated with intelligence and reasoning, and are what set up apart from apes. The frontal lobe is associated with cognition, while the temporal lobe is associated with speech, memory and hearing. “Smart drugs” aim to stimulate such areas to improve intelligence, memory formation, and concentration.
