Human skull with brain. Coloured computer-enhanced X-ray of the human skull in side view, with a healthy brain superimposed on it. The brain fits tightly into the skull and is protected within the surrounding bones of the cranium. At centre left is the facial and jaw region; dental fillings are seen in some molar teeth. The skull is supported by seven cervical vertebrae of the neck. Most of the brain seen here is the folded cerebrum of the left hemisphere; memory and higher conscious thought processes occur in the cerebrum with coordination of voluntary body activity.
