Intelligence, creativity, emotion and memories are a few of the many things governed by the brain. This magnificent organ controls all necessary functions of the body, receives and interprets information from the outside world.
The brain receives information through our five senses: sight, smell, touch, taste, and hearing - often many at the same time. It assembles the messages in a way that has meaning for us, and can store that information in our memory. It controls our thoughts, memory and speech, movement of the arms and legs, and the function of many organs within our body. It also determines how we respond to situations by regulating our heart and breathing rate.
ANATOMY OF THE BRAIN
Although the working of the human brain is complex, the system is quite delicate and has a consistency similar to that of jelly. Even with the protection offered by bone, strong tissues and fluids, it remains susceptible to infections, trauma, and abnormal growths. Sometimes, surgery on the brain forms an important treatment option to save the lives of patients.
