The brain is made up of three elements: the forebrain, the midbrain, and the hindbrain. The forebrain, also called the prosencephalon, is the upper 'thinking' brain and has two main parts: the telencephalon and the diencephalon.

Telencephalon

The telencephalon includes the two cerebral hemispheres that make up the cerebral cortex. It also includes the basal ganglia and most of the limbic system.

Basal forebrain

This is a set of structures at the bottom front of the cortex and in front of the striatum.

This system is important in the production of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine, which is important in memory and learning.

Degenerative diseases such as Parkinson's and Alzheimer's typically affect this area.

Diencephalon

The diencephalon simply includes the thalamus and the Hypothalamus.
