The cerebral cortex is the outer layer of the brain. It is often called the gray matter of the brain. It is approximately 2 millimeters thick, covering the entire surface of the cerebral hemispheres. The cerebral cortex can be divided into four lobes: temporal lobe, occipital lobe, parietal lobe and frontal lobe. Functionality of the cerebral cortex can be divided into the motor cortex, and the sensory cortex. The motor cortex is part of the cerebral cortex involved in controlling voluntary motor functions. The sensory cortex is involved in receiving and processing information from the skin and other sense organs. Check out the following videos to learn more about the cerebral cortex. For additional information, also see our cerebral cortex reference materials.
