cerebrum

ce·re·brum

/səˈrēbrəm/

Noun

The cerebrum is the area of the brain that comprises most of the mass, folding upon itself multiple times in order to increase the amount of surface area that can fit inside the skull. It is also responsible for so-called “higher order” processes, such as making conscious thought and storing information as memories, which it then uses to make decisions (called reasoning).
