== == In short, the cerebral cortex is the outer and largest part of the brain, that covers its smaller parts and is usually easily visible on brain illustrations. It contains gray matter (neurons) responsible for the "higher" functions of thinking and information processing. There's also a lot of information about the cerebral cortex on http://www.answers.com/cerebral+cortex
