The cerebrum, the topmost part of the brain, is the "thinking" part of the brain.
This growth and the increased complexity of neuron networks in the cerebrum have made possible a greater flexibility of response and adaptation to the environment, whereas the behavior of such less advanced vertebrates as reptiles is instinctive and relatively invariant because it is based on comparatively inflexible network arrangements within the brain.
