Cerebral Cortex Function

The thalamus is the gateway to the cerebral cortex; assists with motor control and relaying signals to the cerebellum; and plays a role in memory and emotional responses via the limbic system


Lateral view of the cerebral cortex showing the principal gyri and sulci. Major structures include the central sulcus and the precentral (primary motor), premotor, and postcentral (primary somatosensory) gyri. Also note the gyri situated rostral to the premotor cortex, including the orbital gyri, which mediate higher order intellectual functions and contribute to the regulation of emotional behavior. Brocas motor speech area and Wernickes area (for reception of speech) are important areas…


Accurately depicts the brain from four different views using color-coding to show the anatomy and functional areas. Labels for the cerebral cortex, cerebellum, brainstem, frontal lobes, temporal lobes, parietal lobes, occipital lobes and pituitary gland. To the left are color-code keys depicting functional areas for vision, association, motor function, Broca's speech, hearing, emotions, sensation, smell, written language, cognition and base motor functions like balance, equilibrium and…


The diagram shows which areas of your brain control different activities. Damage to a particular area can affect that activity.

Unhealthy gut flora can impact your mental health, leading to health issues like autism, depression, and anxiety.


"A map of the average "functional connectivity" in the human cerebral cortex collected on healthy subjects while "at rest" in the MRI scanner. Regions in yellow/red are functionally connected to the "seed" location (black circle, arrow), whereas regions in green and blue are weakly connected or not connected at all."
