- Brain development : The build-up of the brain from ectodermal cells to a complex structure of neurons, glia and blood vessels.
- Brain evolution : The process by which the central nervous system changed over many generations.
- Brain morphometry : The quantitative study of structures in the brain, their differences between individuals, correlations with brain function, and changes of these characteristics over time.
- Brain size : Umbrella term for various measures of how big a brain is.
- Cell differentiation : The process by which cells become structurally and functionally specialized.
- Cell division : The process by which a parent cell divides into two or more daughter cells.
- Cerebral cortex : External tissue layer within the vertebrate brain, ensheathed by the pia mater; home to the nerve cell bodies; important in learning and dementia.

- Neocortex : The six-layered outer layer of the mammalian brain.
- Pachygyria : A congenital malformation of the cerebral hemisphere that results in unusually thick convolutions of the cerebral cortex.
- Polymicrogyria : A disorder in which the brain surface resembles that of a road paved with cobblestones.
- Stem cell : Describes cells that have the potential to differentiate to new cell types; usually encompasses totipotent, pluripotent and multipotent cells.
