Is the cortical and cerebral cortex the same thing?

yes


Are the frontal lobes and frontal cortex the same?

Yes


Is the cerebral cortex the same as the cerebrum?

not exactly coz Cerebrum : is the largest division of the brain which divides into 2 hemispheres Cerebral cortex: is the outermost layer of gray matter that making Up superficial aspect of the cerebrum


What are the subdivisions of the 4 lobes of the brain?

The four lobes of the cerebral cortex are namely:Frontal lobe: this is located at the front of the brain and is responsible for expressing language, reasoning, motor skills and higher level thought.Subdivisions of frontal lobe:prefrontal cortex: expression of personality and complex thought behaviorspremotor area:has nerves that control voluntary muscle movementmotor area: same as premotorParietal lobe: found in the middle portion of the brain and is responsible for sensory effects such as pressure and touch. The somatosensory cortex is located in this portion of the brain and allows processing of the senses.Temporal lobe: this is located at the bottom of the brain and is responsible for auditory functions and interpreting languages and speech. The hippocampus locted in this area is very closely associated with forming memories.Occipital lobe: this is found at the back of the brain and is responsible for interpreting visual stimuli


When does the human brain mature?

Answermy first answer is NEVER. my reason: the definition of mature is full growth, fully developed perfected. we reach full growth physicaly, but at the same time we never fully developed towards or at perfected. in the medical area, what i remember is up to your teenage years an only your teen years, the majority of activity (chioces logic ect...) are in your amyggla (bottom rear). adults use the frontal cortex. so teens and adults use different parts of the brain, maybe IMO the frontal cortex is were matue thinking comes about. The human brain matures at age 25.

no CORTEX is an outer layer of a body part like the kidney while CEREBRAL CORTEX is the outer layer of the brain.

No. The cerebral cortex is the outermost layer of tissueof the cerebrum and cerebellum.


What do the cerbral cortex and cerebral cortex have in common?

They are the same. The word cerbral is misspelled and should be cerebral. This the covering of the brain. Cortex means "bark", like the bark on a tree.


Is the cortex and the cerebral cortex the same thing?

No the Cortex is the outer layer of a internal organ, a cerebal cotex is, specificly, the outer layer of the brain which contains grey matter and neurons....but after saying that, a Cortex is a outer casing in general


Is the cerebral cortex and the motor cortex the same?

The motor cortex is part of the cerebral cortex and it runs along a part of the cerebral cortex, a fold called the central sulcus. It is found on both sides of the brain. A stroke here can cause a person to lose the ability to move a muscle or muscles on the opposite side of the body from where the stoke occurred.


What is the size of a dolphin's cerebral cortex?

A dolphins brain and therefore its cerebral cortex is about the same size as a humans, however some dolphin species have a more deeply folded cerebral cortex than in humans but the cortex itself is not as thick. The level of folding found in the dolphins brain is so similar to that of humans as to suggest that they have a level of intelligence comparable to our own. So to answer the question what is the size of a dolphins cerebral cortex, the data seams to suggest it is about the same as our own.

Where visual stimuli received and analysed?

The visual stimuli are received by occipital lobe. The same is analysed by cerebral cortex.


How is your brain different from the brain of another animal?

The huge relative size of our cerebral cortex, the frontal lobes especially, give the human brain some unique fucntions. No other species has the same level of self-awareness, self-control, reasoning, imagination, creativity and abstract thought.
