Caption: Human brain. Illustration of a normal brain inside a human head shown in profile. The folded area on top, which occupies most of the brain, is the cerebrum. This is the site of "higher" faculties such as intelligence and consciousness, and is unusually large in humans. The pale pink structure directly under the cerebrum is the corpus callosum, beneath which is the thalamus. This relays messages between different parts of the brain. Under the thalamus are the cerebellum (with tree-like cross-section) & brainstem (adjacent to and below the cerebellum). The cerebellum controls balance and co-ordination, while the brainstem controls involuntary reflexes like breathing.
