Case description

"The cerebral cortex of the brain refers to the outer layer of grey matter that covers the two cerebral hemispheres. The cerebral cortex contains nerve cell bodies and is approximately 2-4 millimetres thick. This layer has many folds - the elevations called gyri and the grooves are called sulci. The cerebral cortex is distinct from the cerebrum (forebrain). The cerebrum describes the two cerebral hemispheres (right and left). The cerebral cortex has a wide range of functions such as perception and awareness of sensory information and planning and initiation of motor activity. It also has a role in decision making, motivation, learning, memory, attention, problem-solving and conceptual thinking. The cerebral cortex is organised into six lobes - the frontal lobe, the parietal lobe, the temporal lobe, the occipital lobe, the insular lobe, and the limbic lobe."
