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…

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

Pyramidal neurons forming a network in the brain. These are nerve cells from the cerebral cortex that have one large apical dendrite and several basal dendrites.
