Term: Cerebral Cortex
Definition (Myers): the intricate fabric of interconnected neural cells that covers the cerebral hemispheres; the body's ultimate control and information-processing center.
Definition (alternative): The cerebral cortex is the layer of the brain often referred to as gray matter. The cortex is gray because nerves in this area lack the insulation that makes most other parts of the brain appear to be white.
Contextual explanation: Cerebral cortex is a structure within the brain that plays important role in memory, attention, perceptual awareness, thought, language, and consciousness.
