Brain. Computer artwork of a human brain (side view). The front of the brain is at right. The brain is the nerve centre that controls bodily functions and thought. The convoluted surfaces of the cerebrum are seen here. The cerebrum, the largest and most developed part of the brain, envelops much of the rest of the brain. Its outer layer is the grey matter of the cerebral cortex, responsible for intelligent thought, language, conscious movement and memory. The brainstem, seen emerging from the rest of the brain at lower left, controls the autonomic (unconscious) body functions such as breathing. It continues downwards to become the spinal cord (not seen).
