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…
Decision-making at the neuronal level: in this simplified model, cerebral cortex neurons (red) ask striatal neurons (blue) for advice on two possible courses of action: action A, which has previously had a positive outcome, and action B, which has had a negative outcome. #neuroscience #brain #choices Nature Publishing Group
Individual Differences in Laughter Perception Reveal Roles for Mentalizing and Sensorimotor Systems in the Evaluation of Emotional Authenticity | Cerebral Cortex | Oxford Academic
Structural differences in the cerebral cortex have been found in patients with depression. These differences normalize with appropriate medication, report researchers.
