The brain is the convoluted organ within your cranium (skull). It is the major part of the central nervous system, controlling the functions of the body. It is also the seat of cognitive intelligence. The human brain consists of four major parts: cerebrum, cerebellum, brain stem, and diencephalon.

(the dienchephalon may also be grouped within the brain stem)
