Parietal Lobe
Explanation

Your parietal lobe is at the top of your brain behind your frontal lobe. It tells your body what you feel with your fingertips and lets you know when you feel pain, or if something is too hot or too cold. Your parietal lobe is also involved in the control of things like calculating, writing and drawing.
