Another term for cerebrum is the telencephalon. It consists of the cerbral cortex, basal ganglia, corpus striatum and olfactory bulb. Memory, intelligence, thinking, motor function, the senses, learning and the personality are all functions of the cerebrum. The cerebrum controls voluntary actions and is a place for the senses to register. The cerebrum is further divided into two hemispheres or halves and each side is responsible for the control of the opposite side of the body. The corpus callosum connects each side. The cerebrum is the largest part of the human brain.
