Parietal refers to the parietal region of the brain, located near the side and top of the skull. It is directly above the occipital region, which is located at the back of the skull and above the temporal region which encompasses each side of the skull by and slightly above the ears. It houses the parietal lobe which is responsible for several different functions. Part of the parietal lobe involves sensations and perceptions while the other section integrates sensory input, specifically, spatial relationships in the person’s visual field.
