The Largest Part of the Human Brain is Cerebrum
A human brain is the central organ of the human nervous system. The spinal cord makes up the nervous system. The human brain is a three-pound organ which has a control to every functioning of our body, interprets information from outside world and embodies the essence of mind and soul. Moreover, the human brain is composed of three parts which are cerebrum, cerebellum and the brainstem. The largest part of the brain is cerebrum which is about 2/3 of brains mass. The brain consists of Hemispheres (left and right) each having four lobes. The lobes prefrontal, parietal, Temporal and occipital. Therefore, the cerebrum is also known as telencephalon. Cerebrum sits on the top of the brain. Cerebrum performs higher functions such as interpreting touch, vision, and hearing, also including reasoning, speech, emotions and fine control of movements
. However, the cerebrum and diencephalon make up the forebrain. The forebrain is responsible for thinking and perception. A gray tissue known as cerebral cortex covers the brain. Hence, the cerebrum is the uppermost region of the central nervous system. Do you know which is a weak base?
