Artwork of an external, profile view of a whole human brain, showing the spinal cord at bottom. The appearance of the human brain is dominated by the heavily-folded exterior of the cerebral cortex (the grey matter). The cerebral cortex is involved in 'higher' activities, such as memory & reasoning and contains the centres for motor & sensory control of the body. The brainstem, the swelling at the top of the spinal cord, controls respiration & heart functions. At bottom right is the cerebellum (ribbed appearance), which is involved in muscular coordination and balance.
