The temporal lobes are a part of the brain, particularly the cerebral cortex, that occupy a space on either side of the head roughly starting behind the ears and extending near the back of the skull. 

The primary role of the temporal lobes is to process sound, but it also plays an important role in how humans understand words and visual information.  It also allows humans to form long term memory.
