Number of lobes in the cerebrum

How many lobs are there in the cerebrum?

6

It is important to know that brain lobes are related to different brain functions.  The cerebrum, the largest portion of the human brain, is divided into lobes.  There are six lobes: frontal lobe, parietal lobe, occipital lobe, temporal lobe, limbic lobe and insular cortex.  Not too many people know that the frontal lobes are the most uniquely human of all the brain structures.  The occipital lobe is in direct connection with the sense of sight.  On the other hand, the temporal lobe is in connection with the sense of smell.
