Cerebral Cortex: Development The cerebral cortex is the cerebrums or brains outer layer of neural tissue. Two cortices divide it. First, the longitudinal fissure dividing the cerebrum into the left cerebral and right cerebral hemisphere. The two region are joined beneath the cortex by the corpus callosum.
