The Human Brain


             The human being is considered to be the ultimate form of life on the
             earth. This is not because the human body is strong and agile. Many other
             animals posses skills much superior to humans and are able to perform feats
             humans can only dream of. The one thing that distinguishes humans from all
             of the other organisms on this planet is the brain. The brain is the site
             that controls the human body. However, unlike in animals, in man, the brain
             is also the site of the mind. The mind gives humans superiority over other
             creatures. It provides humans with the ability to reason, to feel and to

             adapted to new lifestyles. As time passed, humans learned to record
             history. They analyzed past events and applied this knowledge to solve

             Many sciences were born. Some of them centered around humans. They
             included, among many others, psychology and neurology. While psychology
             deals with the mind and human behavior, neurology is the study of the
             The nervous system of the human being consists of several parts. The
             main structures are the brain and the spinal chord. The system also
             includes nerves which sense external and internal stimuli and then relate
             all information to the central processing unit, i.e. the brain.
             Because of man's rapid evolution in technology and medicine, humans now
             know a great deal more about their own nervous system then they did even a
             few years ago. T
