The frontal lobe of the brain (behind the forehead) is the largest of the four lobes of the brain. The frontal lobe controls “executive functions,” such as memory, thinking, reasoning, information processing, organizing, planning, decision making and judgment. The back part of the frontal lobe controls voluntary movement. The frontal lobe is the “gatekeeper” of one’s personality, controlling judgment, inhibition, and an individual’s emotional traits.

Frontal lobe injuries can cause the following symptoms:

  • Reduced drive
  • Mood changes (Emotionally Labile)
