Neurons, animation. Neuronal network in the cerebral cortex, the outermost layer of neurons (nerve cells) in the brain. It is made up pyramidal neurons, which are highly branched and active. The green lights show the path of nervous impulses, which would typically take 400-1000 milliseconds. The Cerebral cortex plays a key role in memory, attention and consciousness. It is a highly plastic area of the brain that changes as you learn and build memories.
