Can you function without a frontal lobe?
It depends on what you mean by function. Can you live without a frontal lobe? Yes. You can carry out basic functions without a frontal lobe, including eating, sleeping, moving, etc. As the frontal lobes control executive functions (planning, strategies, social awareness, etc.), without a frontal lobe you would not have these abilities and your personality would be different. Many mammals have small frontal lobes and as a result usually do not engage in the higher level cognitive functions listed above.
