and I think it's not a good idea to ask which brodmann area is this 22, 17, 3, 45, etc.
Nowadays they are not concerned with how you memorized the topic, they want to make sure that you understood the concept.

Nonetheless, make sure you know at least the lobar location of each function

e.g Wernick's aphasia in posterior superior part of the temporal lobe ...

Oh my God.
Don't tell me they are going to ask us to number the Brodmann areas
These are impossible to memorize :toosad:

Its not high yield. A question might use a brodmann's area number to refer to structure on a cross section or a CT of the brain. Thats about it. Just generally know where things are and the basics such as Wernicke's and Broca's
