Brain. Computer artwork of a human brain, seen in profile with the front of the brain at right. The outer layer of the forebrain, its cerebral cortex, is folded into gyri. The cortex is rich in nerve cells and is responsible for intelligent thought, language, memory and conscious movement. The brainstem (bottom centre) sub-consciously controls the body's vital functions, including breathing and blood pressure. The cerebellum (lower left) controls muscular coordination, balance and posture.
