The cerebral cortex controls movements and sensations in an integrated manner. It is the "highest center" of higher brain functions which control memory and consciousness. Its dysfunction leads to severe brain disorders such as Alzheimer's disease, epilepsy, impaired mobility, mental retardation, impaired consciousness, and psychosis. In addition, cerebrovascular diseases (cerebral hemorrhage, cerebral infarction) and head injuries can also cause a severe impairment of the cerebral cortex, and often leave sequelae such as a paralysis of the limbs. In adults, the cerebral cortex is made of a complex laminar structure composed of fivesix layers, but in fetuses up to midgestation, it consists of four layers. This lamellar structure is known to be essential for the higher functions of the cerebral cortex.
Step 3: A bilingual expert checks the accuracy of the translation and ensures that your original meaning is conveyed.

Here are some common questions our translators receive:

  • Could you please reword this paragraph?

  • I am not sure if the translation conveys my intended meaning fully.

You can use the free re-translation service if you find that

  • The quality of English in the manuscript does not meet publication standards.
  • Your instructions have not been followed.
  • You are dissatisfied with the overall quality of the manuscript, and can cite specific instances.
  • Your manuscript has been rejected by the journal because of the quality of English, even after addressing all our comments before submitting your paper to the journal.

Note: The free re-translation service is applicable to cases of obvious errors or issues in our work, provided you have not made major revisions to the manuscript.

Free Editing Certificate

We issue an editing certificate confirming that your manuscript

  • Has been edited by a native English-speaking editor.
