Study Notes

The cerebrum is the largest part of the human brain, responsible for various functions that enable our daily cognitive and motor functions. It is divided into two cerebral hemispheres, with the outer layer called the cortex (gray matter) and the inner layer (white matter)[1-3] The cerebrum is responsible for:

  • Speech and language: The frontal lobe, located in front of the cerebral hemispheres, has an area called Broca’s area, which is responsible for speech and language[1-2]
  • Prospective memory: This type of memory involves remembering plans made, from simple daily plans to future lifelong plans
  • Physiology, Cerebral Cortex Functions: The cerebral cortex develops from the most anterior part, the forebrain region, of the neural tube
  • Cerebral Hemispheres: The cerebrum is divided into two cerebral hemispheres, with the outer layer called the cortex (gray matter) and the inner layer (white matter)
  • Lobes of the Cerebrum: The cerebrum has four lobes, the frontal lobe, parietal lobe, temporal lobe, and occipital lobe, which are responsible for specific functions[1-3]
