Lateral view of the cerebral cortex showing the principal gyri and sulci. Major structures include the central sulcus and the precentral (primary motor), premotor, and postcentral (primary somatosensory) gyri. Also note the gyri situated rostral to the premotor cortex, including the orbital gyri, which mediate higher order intellectual functions and contribute to the regulation of emotional behavior. Brocas motor speech area and Wernickes area (for reception of speech) are important areas…

New Study: Cannabis May Help Heal the Brain After Injury -- A new study published in the journal Cerebral Cortex has found evidence that activation of the body’s cannabinoid receptors mayoriginal lead to neuroprotective benefits which can help heal the brain after a traumatic injury.

Drawing of the inside of the brain; shows the location of the cerebral cortex, corpus callosum, thalamus, hypothalamus, amygdala, hippocampus, cerebellum, and brain stem. The location of the frontal, parietal, temporal, and occipital lobes are also labeled.
