What is another/scientific name for the brain?My science teacher asked us this question and I might've gotten the question wrong but I think he said something that started with "neur-". Thanks!
The "scientific" name for Brain is Cerebrum. This is encased within the Cranium. However this is specific to the Human Brain.
The synonym of the term "brain" is "encephalon". It's structure is split in 3 parts:
1) Fore brain or Prosencephalon
2) Mid brain or Mesencephalon
3) Hind brain of Rhombencephalon
