The Most Amazing Facts About The Human Brain
14 Things You Didn't Know About Your Brain
Throughout history, the human brain has been remarkably good at dismissing itself. Everyone from ancient Egyptians to Aristotle has downplayed the role of the mysterious stuff between our ears. Famed anatomist Galen gave the brain credit as commander of movement and speech, but even he brushed aside the white and gray matter, figuring the fluid-filled ventricles inside the brain did most of the work. The average adult brain weighs just under 3 pounds between 1. Some neurosurgeons describe the texture of a living brain as that of toothpaste, but according to neurosurgeon Katrina Firlik, a better analogy can be found in the local health-food store. If you aren't charmed by that description, consider this: About 80 percent of the contents of your cranium is brain, while equal amounts of blood and cerebrospinal fluid, the clear liquid that buffers neural tissue, make up the rest.

The human mind is a true enigma. Even with all of the advances that science has made, there are still many more questions than answers about the way our brain works. And about the true extent of its potential. Science ignores the details of why and how we dream, how exactly our memories are formed and what mechanisms make the development and change of emotions possible. Among many other questions that are still unanswered. Each day, countless experiments take place around the world.
The human brain is the command center for the human nervous system. It receives signals from the body's sensory organs and outputs information to the muscles. The human brain has the same basic structure as other mammal brains but is larger in relation to body size than any other brains. The largest part of the human brain is the cerebrum, which is divided into two hemispheres, according to the Mayfield Clinic. Underneath lies the brainstem, and behind that sits the cerebellum.
