If you do know quite a bit about the temporal lobes, why didn't you specify
exactly what kind of information you were interested in?  If it was the
most recent information, why didn't you say that?  The neural systems in
the various areas of the temporal lobes are involved in very different kinds
of processing (object recognition, audition, long-term memory).  Asking about
the temporal lobes is like asking about the whole brain.

I agree with Frank -- I find it very annoying when people make posts like 
"give me info about X", where X is some huge topic like "cognition", "memory",
"the brain", etc.
