Cerebrum

Name: Cerebrum
Description: Gross division of the brain. The term cerebrum has several definitions ranging in generality from equivalence to the term "brain" to the sum of the left cerebral hemisphere and right hemisphere, to a composite structure consisting of the cerebral cortex and adjacent cerebral white matter. A thorough discussion of the nature and history of the different definitions is presented in Anthoney-94 (NeuroNames).

EditorialNoteIt is definitely correct to sub-class Cere It is definitely correct to sub-class Cerebrum as a Regional_part_of_forebrain. It isn't clear all would agree Cerebrum and Telencephalon are equivalent. Is this what we want to declare for BIRNLex? (BB). Nolte (The Human Brain: An Introduction to its Functional Neuroanatomy, 6th ed pg 72, presents a hierarchy where the cerebrum consists of the cerebral hemispheres (plus subcortical structures) and the diencephalon. This is not a term that has much scientific validity, nor, in my opinion, is it worth declaring a definition one way or the other (MM) ing a definition one way or the other (MM)
