The frontal lobe lies just beneath the forehead, or frontal bone. It is separated from the temporal lobe by the lateral sulcus, and the central sulcus separates it from the parietal lobe. Primarily, the frontal lobe is engaged in the chief thinking functions of the brain, such as critical and analytical reasoning, and judgment (the ability to identify future consequences of current actions). Cognition, memory, language skills, and a person's emotional traits are also stored in the frontal lobe
The parietal lobe is posterior to the frontal lobe and superior to the occipital lobe; it is protected by the parietal bone of the skull. Like the frontal lobe, the parietal lobe is separated from the temporal lobe by the lateral sulcus. This lobe processes basic sensations like temperature, pressure, touch, pain, and proprioception (joint movement). Storage of data, and the development of tactile sensation (which helps in the recognition of familiar objects via touch without visual aid), are also functions of the parietal lobe.
The temporal lobe is located on both sides of the brain, just beneath the lateral Sylvian fissure. This lobe registers the olfactory sense (smell), and is very involved in the processing of auditory input (sound). Speech, memory, and emotion are also partly controlled by this lobe.  In general, the temporal lobe distinguishes various sounds and smells, as well as sort newly acquired data; it is also thought to play a role in short-term memory. The left and the right lobes differ in some of their primary functions. The left lobe for example, houses verbal memory (names, words, etc.), but the right lobe is involved with visual memory (faces, pictures, places, etc.).
