What it does...
This area is the boss of your brain, and the rest of your body. It helps you to think and decide what to do. You use your frontal lobe when you choose a birthday present, do a jigsaw, or try to make someone feel happy.
Have you ever felt angry, jealous or sad, but tried not to show it? Your frontal lobe helps you to control your feelings. It shapes your whole personality.
How it’s affected...
If a person’s frontal lobe isn’t working very well, their personality may change. They may do or say things they would never have done before they were ill.
Did you know?
Your brain is wrinkled and folded to help it fit inside your head. If you spread it out flat, it would be about the size of a pillowcase.
