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


The #cerebral #cortex is the furrowed outer layer of gray matter in the #cerebrum of the #brain, associated with the higher brain functions such as voluntary movement, coordination of #sensory information, #learning and #memory, and the #expression of #individuality. It grows thicker as you learn to use it. #brainfacts #education #learning #facts #Birmingham #MI #brainbalance #addressthecause

Human Brain The brain is the most complex organ in the human body made up of over 100 billion nerve cells. It controls the central and peripheral nervous systems and regulates most human activity. This collection looks at the structure and function of the brain and covers a number of the diseases to which it is susceptible.
