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.
