The Brain Thang/ Gorelephant
Brain Size: The weight of the brain, compared to one another.
Cerebrum:(incorporate the four lobes) most anterior part of the brain located in the frontal area of the skull consisting of two hemispheres, left and right, separated by a fissure. It is responsible the complex sensory and neural functions.
Cerebellum:The part of the brain located behind the top of the brain stem and has 2 halves. It controls posture,balance,coordination,and speech
Cortical Complexity: Cortical complexity is the size of the cords built up inside the animal's brain
Limbic System:( Thalamus, Hypothalamus, Hippocampus, Amygdala): Controls instinct and mood and also basic emotions(fear,happiness,sadness)/drives(hunger, …show more content…
The following data collected has brought me to the conclusion of using the elephant as the base because it is bigger than the gorilla Brain which is more like a chimpanzee meaning it has more human characteristics, this was huge plus in the making of our brain because this gives us more of a insight in how we were to construct the model. Once more proving to have two incredibly smart animals here are a few ways they use their brain in important ways. Gorilla brains basically work like human brains they are the closest mammals to humans. Elephants have really good memory so the limbic system of the brain will be a decent size. The parts like the mortar cortex and the somatosensory cortex will be the same size since they have to do with body functions and movements. The cerebrum and the cerebellum will only have one side instead of both halves, because there is only gonna be half of the brain shown so you can see the inside of the brain's mortor
