1. Function of the brain?

1.1. Cerebrum

1.1.1. Largest part of the brain.

1.1.2. Responsible for memory, speech, the senses, emotional response, and more.

1.1.3. Divided into several sections called lobes Frontal Temporal parietal Occipital

1.2. Cerebellum

1.2.1. Below and behind the cerebrum

1.2.2. Attached to the brain stem.

1.2.3. Controls motor function, the body's ability to balance, ability to interpret information sent to the brain by the eyes, ears, and other sensory organs.

1.3. Diencephalon,

1.3.1. Inside the cerebrum above the brain stem

1.3.2. Tasks sensory function, food intake control the body's sleep cycle.

1.3.3. Divided into sections. Thalamus Hypothalamus Epithalamus

1.4. Brainstem

1.4.1. Function Respiration Blood pressure Reflexes, and the changes that happen in the body during what is called the “fight or flight” response.

1.4.2. Divided into several distinct sections The midbrain Pons Medulla oblongata.

2. How the brain works?

2.1. The prefrontal cortex

2.1.1. called the thinking brain,which can consciously process and reflect on information

2.2. the lower, automatic brain

2.2.1. called the reactive brain, which reacts to information instinctively rather than through thinking.

2.3. Emotions

2.3.1. Positive We can control what information makes it into our brain. By calming our brain, we can control which sensory data from our environmet our brain lets in or keeps out and influence which information gets admitted to our prefrontal cortex.

2.3.2. Negative When our stress levels are down,so our interest is high, the most valuable information tends to pass into our thinking brain. The brain filters conduct sensory information from the world around us into our reactive brain. Will do 1 from 3things

3. What is Human Brain?

3.1. The human brain is the command center for the human nervous system. It receives input from the sensory organs and sends output to the muscles.

3.2. The human brain has the same basic structure as other mammal brains, but is larger in relation to body size than any other brains.

3.3. it’s not equipped to process the billions of bits of information that bombard it every second. Filters in our brain protect it from becoming overloaded. These filters control the information flow so that only approximately 2,000 bits of information per second enter the brain.
