Human brain anatomy & functions by neuroscience.
The human brain is a very complex organ with a very high processing capacity unmatched by any computer system: it is able to receive and process simultaneously thousand of sensory and cognitive inputs through sight, smell, touch, taste, and hearing on the millisecond scale, store information in the brain and control our thoughts, movements, actions, and speech. The brain receives information through our five senses: sight, smell, touch, taste, and hearing. Studying how the brain works is one of the most challenging and interesting problems in biology and cognition. During this workshop you will be introduced to some oft he techniques used to study the human brain and the human mind.
The nervous system is made of 2 parts:
The central nervous system (CNS) composed of the brain and the spinal cord.
The peripheral nervous system (PNS) is the composed of the spinal and cranial nerves and includes the autonomic nervous system which control vital non-cognitive function such as respiration and heart rate.
The human brain controls all functions in the body and our mind (or who we are). The brain is very well protected. The skull is very hard and protects the brain from injuries, In addition the brain is covered by three membranes (the meninges) and cerebrospinal fluid, which fills the 4 ventricles in the brain and provides essential cushioning as well as nutrients.
