The human brain is a complex organ that allows you to think, move, feel, see, hear, taste, and smell. It controls your body, receives information, analyzes information, and stores information in the form of memories. The brain produces electrical signals, and coupled with chemical reactions, let the parts of the body communicate. Although the brain is only 2% of the body’s weight, it uses 20% of the oxygen supply and receives 20% of the blood flow.
The brain has three main parts: the cerebrum, the cerebellum, and the brain stem (medulla). The cerebrum is involved in remembering, problem solving, thinking, feeling and movement. The cerebellum is located at the back of the head, and controls your coordination and balance. The brain stem connects the brain to the spinal cord and controls automatic functions such as breathing, digestion, heart rate and blood pressure.
