Cerebrum. Light micrograph of a section through the cerebrum of a human brain showing the cortex and medulla. The cerebrum is formed of two lobes (left and right) which cover most of the rest of the brain. The cortex (purple) contains grey matter and makes up the outer layer of the cerebrum, containing the majority of the nerve cell bodies. The white matter of the medulla (white) consists largely of nerve fibres, which form links between separate nerve cells. The cerebrum is the largest and most highly developed part of the brain. It deals largely with sensory perception, memory and recognition, and conscious thought. Magnification unknown.
