Isn’tÂ it amazing that an organ the size of a small cabbage controls all the functions of your body? The brain is an amazing instrument. It controls your heart, your emotions, your muscles, your senses and your memory. In essence, everything that happens within you is controlled by one large muscle, and like all muscles it starts to weaken with age.
Scientists are just beginning to understand how your brain works.
For years it was believed that your brain was comprised of a number of regions, called lobes, and that each lobe operates independently for different functions:
- The Frontal Lobe is believed to control reasoning, motor skills, and language.
- The Temporal Lobe interprets sounds, what we hear, and the formation of memory.
- The Parietal Lobe processes your senses
- The Occipital Lobe is associated with visual stimulation and interpretation of what you see.
