Their result for The Brain Damage Test ...
20% Frontal, 40% Temporal, 10% Hippocampus and 20% Cerebellum!
The temporal lobe has many functions including auditory processing, visual preception, language comprehension, long term memory, and personality. Here, I'd like to talk about a specific type of bilateral temporal lobe damage called Klüver-Bucy syndrome.
Symptoms: Some symptoms of Klüver-Bucy syndrome may include visual agnosia (inability to identify what you see), emotional changes (especially flattened emotion), altered sexual behavior, and socially inappropriate behavior. The temporal lobe is essential for identifying and categorizing what we see so we can respond correctly, so people with damage to this area may have difficulty recognizing faces, identifying facial expressions, or even correctly reacting to certain types of visual stimuli (e.g. reacting fearfully to the sight of a snake).
Causes: The full syndrome is very rare in humans because it requires extensive bilateral temporal damage. Such damage can be caused by a serious brain infection like herpes or other encephalitis or a degenerative neurological disease.
Resources: I would recommend the book Phantoms in the Brain: Probing the Mysteries of the Human Mind by Dr. V.S. Ramachandran and the Center for Neuro Skills website for more information on interesting neurological disorders
*Please note that this test is very oversimplified and for entertainment purposes only. There are many things that could cause similar symptoms to those listed and these are certainly not the only types of symptoms that could present with temporal damage. You, yourself, most likely do not have brain damage. I hope you had fun learning about this particular disease and that it sparked your curiosity about the brain!
