Cerebral Cortex: the layer of unmyelinated neurons (the gray matter) forming the cortex of the cerebrum
Source: WordNet 2.1
Cerebral Cortex : thin layer of gray matter on the surface of the cerebral hemisphere that develops from the telencephalon and folds into gyri; it reaches its highest development in man and is responsible for intellectual faculties and higher mental functions.
Cerebral Cortex: The cerebral cortex is the outermost layer and surface of the cerebrum, the largest portion of the brain. The cerebral cortex consists of a large surface area of convoluted folds of nerve tissue called gyri that create deep furrows or fissures called sulci. The cerebral cortex is important to such functions as thought, memory, attention, language, and consciousness. It is divided into four lobes: the frontal lobe, parietal lobe, occipital lobe and temporal lobe.
Conditions that can afflict the cerebral cortex include cerebral palsy, meningitis, subdural hematoma, cancer, inflammation, stroke, genetic diseases, hemorrhage, birth defects, infection, and encephalitis.
