The cerebrum refers to the region of the brain that includes the cerebral cortex and several subcortical structures including the hippocampus and basal ganglia.
It is the largest part of our brain, positioned over and around most other brain structures. The cerebrum is divided into left and right hemispheres, as well as specific areas called lobes that are associated with specialised functions.
