Learning About Your Left Frontal Lobe – A Quick Guide

by Stefan Mitrovic December 18, 2018

There are many languages in the world, and they’re all unique. But when it comes to communication, there are some things we humans have in common.

We laugh and cry. We use our bodies to emphasize what we’re saying. And we all use the same part of our brains to generate our words: the left frontal lobe.

The left frontal lobe is crucial when it comes to language and learning. We’re going to explore this part of the brain and show you how to get the most out of it and develop a true superbrain!

We need to understand how our minds work so we can work out minds better.

What Is Located In Left Frontal Lobe?

The frontal lobe of the brain is divided into two, the right and left hemispheres. The right frontal lobe helps us interpret and process spacial and visual information. The left frontal lobe is responsible for language and speech.

Part of the left frontal lobe that deals with expressing your thoughts through words is called the Broca’s area.

Impacts Of Left Frontal Lobe Injury

Some brain injuries may develop difficulty in speech production, reading and writing comprehension. This is referred to as aphasia. The most common injuries affecting language are those caused by a stroke or physical trauma.

Damage to Broca’s area results in Broca’s aphasia. With Broca’s aphasia, a person will have difficulty moving the tongue or facial muscles when trying to speak.

They will also experience problems when trying to write. However, there should be little difficulty reading and understanding spoken language.

How Can I Keep My Left Frontal Lobe In A Good Shape?

The Recovery and healing of a frontal lobe injury is usually a long process. It’s really impossible to fully predict when progress will begin to show.

Recovery is closely tied to supportive care, regular cognitive challenges, and a lifestyle that supports good health.

What to do when you are recovering from an Injury to your frontal lobe?

To strengthen your brain’s frontal cortex, you’re going to need to activate your brain’s plasticity.

It promotes other, undamaged portions of the brain to take control of some weaker frontal lobe functions when needed.

The best way to engage your brain’s plasticity is by practicing activities in high repetition that target the action you want to improve.

So for example, you may have found yourself in the gym skipping rope but facing difficulty in coordination. Simply speaking, repetitive practice is the best way to improve.

Another way to improve your brain plasticity and other brain functions is ‘brain training’. There are many brain games and exercises you can use to keep your brain in top form. For example, solving brain teasers or sudoku puzzles are an excellent way to train your brain.

One of the most popular games backed by medical doctors is a game called Dual N-Back. A 2008 research paper claimed that practicing a dual n-back task can increase fluid intelligence in the brain.

As Jim Kwik says, “As your body moves, your brain grooves.”

Keeping active and having a healthy diet is also a great way to promote brain health. Regular exercise and physical activity help in flushing the body and brain with feel-good neurotransmitters. Healthy whole food diets also support your brain to perform on an optimal level promoting long-lasting health benefits.

As a matter of fact, any pleasant and stimulating activity does the brain and body well. So do what makes your mind and body happy and you’ll reap the rewards for years to come.
