Gyri: Gyri is the name of the numerous folds of the cerebral cortex, the outermost layer and surface of the cerebrum, the largest portion of the brain. Gyri allow for a larger area of the cerebral cortex to fit inside the cranium, which permits the presence of millions more neurons in the human brain than in the brain of other animals. The gyri are what allow the human brain to perform higher functions, such as speaking, reasoning and creativity. Gyri are surrounded by sulci.
Conditions that can afflict the gyri include cerebral palsy, meningitis, subdural hematoma, cancer, inflammation, stroke, genetic diseases, hemorrhage, birth defects, infection, and encephalitis.
