History

Located in the off-limits west wing of the mansion, the term Cerebro came from the latin 'cerebrum', meaning 'the brain" .

First appearance of Cerebro in Uncanny X-Men 7 (Sept. 1964).

Cerebro amplified the telepathic power of the user by strengthening their brainwaves. It was used to detect and locate mutants around the world. Only experienced telepaths such Emma Frost, Psylocke, Jean Grey, or Xavier himself could use the machine, as non-telepaths would be overwhelmed by it. Dr. Henry McCoy enhanced the device.
