A burst of seventy millivolts will burn out the cerebral cortex of a normal humanoid brain. This, however, can be cheated with an injection of an inoprovaline drug, which provides additional resistance against such excessive electro-stimulation. (DS9: "Life Support")

Ceti eels from Ceti Alpha V enter through a Humanoid's body by the ear and wrap around the cerebral cortex, causing the victim to be susceptible to suggestion. (Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan)

If damaged, tissue in the cerebral cortex can also be treated using a cortical analeptic. (VOY: "The Swarm")

When Deanna Troi temporarily lost her empathic sense due to the influence of two-dimensional lifeforms, a pattern of unresponsive cells in her cerebral cortex and cerebellum was recorded. (TNG: "The Loss")

The Prytt used a psi-wave device implanted in the cerebral cortex as an interrogation method. (TNG: "Attached")

After being accused of espionage by Admiral Strickler and Lieutenant Lasca in an alternate reality, Harry Kim denied it and suggested they run a microcellular scan of his cerebral cortex to prove his memory had not been altered. (VOY: "Non Sequitur")

For a time, The Doctor's mobile emitter was located in One's cerebral cortex, adapted to serve as his central nervous system. (VOY: "Drone")

Seven of Nine's cerebral cortex underwent severe stress in 2375, when a malfunctioning Borg vinculum caused numerous neural patterns from assimilated individuals to overwhelm her mind. (VOY: "Infinite Regress")
