For centuries, scientists and philosophers have been fascinated by the brain. With advancements in research, they have been able to dissect many physical, emotional, social and psychological aspects of the brain. However, there are still many interesting things to learn about the brain.

Our brain is a wonderful organ that starts working as soon as we are born. It keeps working constantly, even when we are sleeping, until we die. It helps us with something as simple as picking up a piece of Lego from the floor to deciding what to prepare for our child’s lunchbox. It helps us think and perform all kinds of activities throughout our lives.

Our brain generates about 12-25 watts of electricity; this is enough to power a low wattage LED light. (www.bebrainfit.com)
