Write a 700- to 1,050-word paper in which you explain the role of the brain in cognitive functions. As a part of your explanation, describe what Phineas Gage’s accident revealed about how brain areas support cognitive function.

Students will need to cover the following –

  • Explain the role of the brain in cognitive functioning,
  • Provide examples of how certain areas of the brain support cognitive functioning,
  • How does Traumatic Brain Injury factor into the story of Phineas Gage?
  • Which areas of Phineas Gage’s brain were destroyed due to the accident and how did this severe injury factor into the subsequent changes in Phineas?  Provide plenty of material to support this change.

Format your paper consistent with APA grading guide. Please review the APA sample paper for more on this.


Also, I have attached the grading rubric as well. The textbook we use is cited like this:
