MARCH  16-22 is Brain Awareness Week!

STOP! Think about all the responsibilities you have…then think about all the responsibilities of your brain…Hhmm. I am willing to bet that your personal responsibilities pales in comparison. The brain is the most complex part of the human body and the boss that runs the whole show.

Your brain weighs a fraction of your total body weight (only ~3 pounds), yet it is:

  • The seat of intelligence
  • Initiator of body movements
  • Interpreter of senses
  • Acquirerer of new knowledge
  • Controller of behavior…and so much more!

You should really take care of your body…and mind!

Recent commercials on brain games and brain training, may have some controversies, BUT they are so much better than sitting and watching TV all day – turning your brain to mush! Some studies have shown, that keeping your brain active and engaged, may even decrease the manifestation of some diseases. (Try the Brain Exercises in the 2nd video below).

Locate a function...

Locate a function…

No one truly pays attention to their brain, until something goes wrong…and with such a complex structure, many, many things can go wrong.

What does a normal brain look like vs Seizure or Stroke or Alzheimer, etc.,? Take a look at this TEDx Talk.

Great images and VERY interesting talk!
