What is amazing about the brain?

The ability of the brain to store the information, become excited, adopt itself, and make decisions, explains why we can talk, walk and use our body. Sometimes an action is done once, and the brain remembers how to do it. At other times an act must be repeated all over again before the brain makes a record and place it in the files. If a new action includes some old ones, the brain sorts out those actions that are familiar and concentrates on that part of the action it must learn. Actions that are repeated often become habits. We do several things at the same time without planning how they should be done.

Life becomes exciting because of the brain. This could be illustrated in the following examples:

You decide to watch a movie, without the cerebrum which is the the thinking part of the brain, you could never make this decision. You could not even imagine what a movie is without your eyes and ears to see and hear. The sense of taste gives you the nice idea of eating a piece of cake. Your sensory nerves tell you that your friend is sick and the motor nerves to hold his hands to comfort him, to turn the chair, to put the cake in your mouth and chew it. The ability of the brain to keep these actions apart yet does them all at the same time makes life fun.

What are the parts of the brain?

The brain is a mass of nerve tissue occupying the cranial cavity and is covered by membranes, fluid, and the bones of the skull. It is a little over three pounds. It is the largest and most complex mass of nervous tissues in the body. It controls all our thinking and all our nerve activities.

1. The cerebral hemispheres are the most superior part of the brain, which enclose and obscure most of the brain stem. The outer nerve tissue of the cerebral hemispheres is the gray matter called the cerebral cortex. The surface of the cerebral hemispheres exhibits elevated ridges of tissue called gyri separated by grooves called as fissures. Other fissures divide each cerebral hemispheres into lobes. A single deep fissure known as the longitudinal fissure separates the cerebral hemispheres. The two hemispheres are composed of the cerebral cortex, basal ganglia and limbic system.

2. The cerebrum controls all the mental processes and all deliberate movements of the body. It is the largest part of the brain and without this part we could neither think nor move any part of the body when we wanted to. It is divided into two sections, which are referred to as cerebral hemispheres by a deep groove called longitudinal fissure. The area between the cerebral hemisphere and the brain stem is the diencephalons.

3. The brain stem connects the cerebrum with the spinal cord. The midbrain is the upper portion of the brain stem. Below it are the pons and the medulla oblongata.

a. The pons is at the base of the skull beneath the cerebellum, receives and sends out impulses or signals from the cerebrum. It has fiber tracts and nuclei involved in respiration.

b. The medulla oblongata is located below the pons. It extends down into the spinal cord and sends on signals received from all parts of the brain. It also contains many nuclei that regulate vital visceral activities. It contains centers that control the heart rate, blood pressure, and breathing swallowing and vomiting.

4. The cerebellum (little brain) is located below the cerebrum at the back of the cerebral hemispheres. It is about the size of a small handball. It controls our sense of balance and our muscle reflexes, such as those that make us automatically take our hand away when we touch a hot object accidentally. It makes it possible for us to work, dance, play games or do anything that needs coordination and balances.



Lobes of the Cerebral Cortex

The cerebral cortex is divided into four lobes which are associated with different functions from reasoning to auditory perception.

  • The frontal lobe is found at the front of the brain which is involved with reasoning, motor skills, higher level cognition, and expressive language. The back of the frontal lobe is the motor cortex which receives information from the different lobes of the brain and uses this information for body movements. When the frontal lobe is damaged, this could lead to changes in sexual habits, socialization, and attention as well as increased risk-taking.
  • The middle lobe of the brain is the parietal lobe which is associated with processing tactile sensory information which is pressure, touch, and pain. The somatosensory cortex which is essential for processing the body's senses is located in this lobe. When this lobe is damaged this might result to problems involving verbal memory, an impaired ability to control eye gaze and problems with language.
  • The temporal lobe which is found at the bottom section is associated with the formation of memories, interpreting sounds and the language we hear. Problems involving memory, speech perception and language skills could result from damaged temporal lobe.
  • The occipital lobe which is found at the back portion of the brain is associated with interpreting visual stimuli and information. From the retinas of the eyes. Visual problems such as difficulty in recognizing objects, inability to identify colors, and trouble recognizing words could result to damaged occipital lobe.

Normal Human Meninges
Normal Human Meninges

Meninges

These are the three connective tissue membranes covering the brain and spinal cord.

1. Dura mater - the "tough or hand mother" is a double layered membrane where it surrounds the brain.

2. Arachnoid mater- the web like middle meningeal layer of the three meninges.

3. Pia mater – the "gentle mother" the delicate membrane that clings tightly to the surface of the brain and spinal cord

Cerebrospinal Fluid

Cerebrospinal fluid is the fluid produced in the cerebral ventricles that fills the ventricles and surrounds the central nervous system. It forms and drains at a constant rate to maintain its normal pressure and volume, which is 100-160 ml, about half a cup. Its major solutes are glucose, proteins and sodium chloride. Any significant changes in its composition could help in diagnosing meningitis and other brain pathologies like tumors and multiple sclerosis.

Disability symbols

Learning Activities

Title: “Clear the Way”

Introduction

Cerebral palsy is a condition resulting from a problem in the brain, which causes muscles not to work properly. The brain is not able to send messages to the muscles to tell them what to do. Some individuals who have cerebral palsy have difficulty to speak or cannot speak at all because the muscles in their faces have been affected by the condition. People with cerebral palsy also have a lack of control of muscles in other parts of their bodies. Sometimes it may take them longer to do things. Not everyone with cerebral palsy needs a wheelchair, braces or a walker. Some of them may walk with a limp but still can get around just fine.

Objectives:

  1. To expand understanding of disabilities
  2. To learn ways to relate positively with persons with disabilities
  3. To understand cerebral palsy
  4. To be aware of obstacles people with disabilities encounter
  5. To respect others
  6. To enhance group skills of cooperation and leadership

Concepts:

  1. Central Nervous System
  2. Cerebral Palsy

Methodology

A. Materials: tape measure, data notebook, pencil or ball pen, s ticker or symbol used for disabled persons

B. Procedure

Part I

  1. Divide yourselves into five groups.
  2. Sometimes people with cerebral palsy wear a helmet or use walker because they have trouble in keeping their balance. To experience this, spin around several time with your eyes closed. Then open your eyes and walk in a straight line.
  • Why was it hard to walk?
  • What did you feel like?
  • What could happen to you if you lost your balance?
  • Why do you think people with cerebral palsy might wear a helmet or use a walker?

Part II

  1. Take a walk around the school, a child center, the neighborhood, playground, a shopping center or community building.
  2. Search for a symbol and for obstacles a person in a wheelchair,with a walker or on crutches might encounter. a. Buildings with only stairs at the entryways b. Curbs more than 2” high c. Doors narrower than the 36” needed for a wheelchair d. Elevator buttons, drinking fountains or telephones too high for a person in a wheelchair to reach e.Obstacles to a hearing impaired person f. Obstacles to a visually impaired person
  3. Get your sticker or symbol for disabled persons.
    • Where have you seen this symbol?
    • What does this sign mean to a person with disability?
    • Are parking spaces marked with this symbol reserved only for people in wheelchairs?
    • What are the problems a person with a wheelchair encountered in places you have visited?

Questions for Review

1. What are the main parts of the brain? Describe the main functions of each part.

2..What is the function of the cerebrospinal fluid? Where and how is it formed?

3. Discuss the four lobes of the cerebral cortex and the impairment or disabilities that would happen in cases of damaged lobes.

4. What are meninges? Be able to describe each of the meninges.

      The brain is one of the most active organs in the human body. It receives 20 percent of the blood that is pumped from the heart, and it replace most of its protein every three weeks. The brain is the major user of glocuse in the body. Unlike the cells of other tissues, the cell of the brain usually metabolizes only glocuse for the release of energy.

      The memory most of learning depends on being able to store and recall memories of past experiences. It though to be a function of the celebral contex. There are two kinds of momentary, memory is a long- term and the short- term.

      Brain is the central processing unit in our body. It is the one that processes all information that we absorb. Brain is also the one that controls every part of our body. For me, of all the body systems, the nervous system is the most important. Because without it, our body would shut down immediately.

      Like in business, we could treat the accountants as one of its brains. Without accountants, decisions would not be properly made. Data would not be properly processed and stored.

      We experience hundreds of thousands of small events that have the potential to become memories. Yet our brain will only store a certain number of these memories. The amazing fact about the brain is how it allows a person to think, feel and store memories, and it controls and coordinates the body’s actions and reactions.

      The brain is really the most complex part of the nervous system. You can see it as a whole but it also divided into parts working together as one. In the corporate world, we all work together to attain our goal. The goal is to earn profit for the company we work at. We ought to work together with our fellow employees to be able to get the job done. Each has his own role that he must play well to achieve it. Anything not in use loses its edge so we must always work hard to keep our edge. Doing nothing will lead you nowhere and attain nothing.

      The Brain can sometimes be called as the central command station of the human body. The brain is very important in all of us because without the brain we can't think nor do different task because we don't know how to do it. The brain plays a vital role because the brain is the one that thinks or the one that process and executes different commands to our body which makes our body follows the steps we think. The brain is just like the CPU of a computer or the USB OF LIFE. The brain also stores memories as we study more. That is why the brain is very important for us to know, decide, study, and much more things to do in life which with the help of our brain as we think and decide, we can achieve it.

      ade up of more than 100 billion nerves that communicate in trillions of connections called synapses.

      The brain is made up of many specialized areas that work together:

      • The cortex is the outermost layer of brain cells. Thinking and voluntary movements begin in the cortex.

      • The brain stem is between the spinal cord and the rest of the brain. Basic functions like breathing and sleep are controlled here.

      • The basal ganglia are a cluster of structures in the center of the brain. The basal ganglia coordinate messages between multiple other brain areas.

      • The cerebellum is at the base and the back of the brain. The cerebellum is responsible for coordination and balance.

      The brain is also divided into several lobes:

      • The frontal lobes are responsible for problem solving and judgment and motor function.

      • The parietal lobes manage sensation, handwriting, and body position.

      • The temporal lobes are involved with memory and hearing.

      • The occipital lobes contain the brain's visual processing system.

      For me brain is the one that commands our body from what we want to do. It means its like a President of the company that command his employee to do a certain job. as a BSA students we need this, we badly need this even though that everybody needs it.

      The brain is the most complex organ in the human body. It produces our every thought, action, memory, feeling and experience of the world. This jelly-like mass of tissue, contains a staggering one hundred billion nerve cells, or neurons. Human brain is such a fascinating part of the body. It tends to control our every movement. One of the most exciting parts is how we can obtain memory. Memory is stored through the knowledge of events that has happen through thoughts, impressions, and events, and I believe that our brain is the determinant of our personality.

      A brain is an organ of soft nervous tissue contained in the skull of vertebrates, functioning as the coordinating center of sensation and intellectual and nervous activity. While nervous system is the network of nerve cells and fibers that transmits nerve impulses between parts of the body or simply a system of the body that in vertebrates includes the brain, spinal cord, nerves, and sense organs that receives, interprets, and responds to stimuli from inside and outside the body. Brain was the one who decided weather what food we eat or want, what things we want to buy or what are the things we do. Our brain was the one who had a controls in our whole body. Through this part we also know what is right and what is wrong because this part of our body gathered information.

      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 otheranimals 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 adapt. Because of this, man has achieved so much, and has also realized.During the course of evolution, ever since early Homo sapiens and his ancestors walked on the surface of the earth, man has wondered about himself, and how he relates to the natural world. People learned and adapted to new lifestyles. As time passed, humans learned to record history. They analyzed past events and applied this knowledge to solve problems. These processes improved as more and more people supplied their experiences to the common pool of knowledge. Such co-operation created the modern man with his superb ability to think.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 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 relateall 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.

      Brain, a natural gift from up above that differs us from any other life forms as it gives us the power to dream about a lot of things we desire, imagine thoughts that would awaken one’s curiosity, creates innovations that would make the world a better place, pray, forgive and do the billions of things that we are capable of. Whatever we want to do in life, our brain is the very first thing inside of us that will tell us how to go about it for we couldn’t do anything without the aid of our brains as it serves as our bodies’ anatomical fuse box that has the power to control everything we do. It flips all of our bodies’ switches and most of all, it is what makes us unique. In addition to that, it is considered as the fattest organ in our body and indeed, the most bizarre as the brain itself has no pain receptor.

      The brain is the command center for the human nervous system. It receives input from the sensory organs and sends output to the muscles. It is the body's control center, receiving and sending signals to other organs through the nervous system and through secreted hormones. It is responsible for our thoughts, feelings, memory storage and general perception of the world. The brain is important in the human body because it allows a person to think, feel and store memories, and it controls and coordinates the body’s actions and reactions, states the Atlanta Brain and Spine Care. The brain is an incredibly complex organ composed of many parts, including the cranium the bony covering that protects the brain, the cerebrum the front area of the brain, the brain stem serves as the body’s main control panel that transmits messages between the brain and the rest of the body, and the cerebellum which is mainly a movement control center responsible for fine motor skills, voluntary muscle movements, and balance, posture and equilibrium maintenance. Without our brain, there would not be alive at all.

      Much of the brain's physiological task involves receiving information from the rest of the body, interpreting that information, and then guiding the body's response to it. Types of input the brain interprets include odors, light, sounds, and pain. The brain also helps perform vital operations such as breathing, maintaining blood pressure, and releasing hormones (chemical signals that control certain cells and organs). The brain is divided into sections. These sections include the cerebrum, the cerebellum, the diencephalon, and the brainstem. Each of these parts is responsible for certain portions of the brain's overall job. The larger parts are, in turn, divided into smaller areas that handle smaller portions of the work. Different areas often share responsibility for the same task.

      Our brains are getting smaller. Over the past 10-20,000 years, the size of the average human brain has shrunk by the size of a tennis ball.

      We are not getting smarter. Since the Victorian era, average IQs have gone down 1.6 points per decade for a total of 13.35 points.Multitasking makes you less productive. When you multitask, your brain simply rapidly toggles back and forth between tasks. This results in decreases in attention span, learning, performance, and short-term memory.

      Brain is the organ of the body that controls functions, movements, sensations, and thoughts. Our brain is the one that is responsible for controlling everything what we do and what we think. The emotions that we feel are also controlled by our brain. Just like others, our brain has several parts also, such as cerebellum, cerebrum, brain stem, medulla oblongata and pons, and they perform specific functions.

      The relevance of this topic in Accountancy is the word "control". In a business or in a company there is a manager who is responsible for controlling and managing the business. If there is no manager in a business, the whole company will not function. That's why all of us has the ability to control and that is because of our brain.

      The brain is the control center of the human body. The brain is protected and enclosed by the skull. The brain is immersed in the cerebrospinal fluid in the skull and serves as the "cushion" for the brain. The parts of the human brain can be grouped into three: the forebrain, midbrain, and hindbrain. In the forebrain, you can find the cerebrum, thalamus, and hypothalamus. The cerebrum is the largest portion of the brain. It controls the sensory functions and is also responsible for intelligence, personality, and understanding of language. The cerebrum is divided into left and right hemispheres, which are connected by a structure called corpus callosum. Each hemisphere is divided into four lobes: the frontal lobe, parietal lobe, temporal lobe and occipital lobe. The frontal lobe is responsible for reasoning, higher-order cognition, and language. The parietal lobe is responsible for tactile (touch) sensory information. The temporal lobe is responsible for interpreting sounds and language. The occipital lobe is associated with interpreting information and visual stimuli.

      The human brain is the most complex organ in the human body and probably the most complex creation present on this universe. It is evident that, the world’s greatest man made wonders are a result of the human brain making it the most amazing feature in a human being. The human brain with its complexity acts like a storage device which holds safely a person’s most cherished memories.

      The human brain is the only organ in the human body that lacks nerves despite the fact that it acts as the central command for the central nervous system. This simply implies that, the human brain feels no pain.

      It consumes the largest portion of the total energy that is generated in the human body. To be precise, the brain consumes 20% of that energy despite the fact that it only represents only 2% of the total body weight. The energy is vital for maintaining healthy brain cells and fueling nerve impulses.

      The Brain is the mass of nerve tissue in the anterior end of an organism. The brain integrates sensory information and directs motor responses of organisms. It governs the functioning of the body’s other organs. Without brain we are nothing because it is the main control of the Central Nervous System. It controls everything a living organism can do that’s why learning about the amazing facts about the brain is important.

      The human brain is the command center for the human nervous system. It receives input from the sensory organs and sends output to the muscles. The human brain has the same basic structure as other mammal brains, but is larger in relation to body size than any other brains.

      The human brain is ultimately responsible for all thought and movement that the body produces. This allows humans to successfully interact with their environment, by communicating with others and interacting with inanimate objects near their position. If the brain is not functioning properly, the ability to move, generate accurate sensory information or speak and understand language can be damaged as well.

      The brain is made up of nerve cells which interact with the rest of the body through the spinal cord and nervous system. These cells relate information back to specific centers of the brain where it can be processed and an appropriate reaction can be generated. Several chemicals are also located in the brain, which help the body maintain homeostasis, or a sense of overall comfort and calm as its basic needs are met. Keeping these chemicals balanced and the nerve cells firing properly are essential to healthy brain function.

      The brain is the center of our thoughts, the interpreter of our external environment, and the origin of control over body movement. The human brain has been called the most complex object in the known universe, and in many ways it's the final frontier of science. Our brain has different functions like for example, our brain recognizes our touch, so we can tickle ourselves. Music can increases our brain organization and the amyglada in our brain lets us read facial cues.

      The Brain is the largest and most complex mass of nervous tissues in the body. It controls all our thinking and all our nerve activities. Our brain is really amazing because everything that we do or we already did can be a memory or we can remember it. Some of the memory can be forgotten or we can feel that it already happen just like a dejavu. Our brain is like a memory card that has unknown capacity. Every time we study or read books, we can remember some part of it and some are not.

      The brain is not just important but very impotant especially in our movement. It is the commander of our body in order for us to move, react, conceptualize, comprehend, think, speak and survive. Brain is also needed to be studies by us,as students of accountancy, because in it, we need much skill in logical reasoning.

      The human brain is the only organ in the human body that lacks nerves despite the fact that it acts as the central command for the central nervous system. This simply implies that, the human brain feels no pain. It consumes the largest portion of the total energy that is generated in the human body. To be precise, the brain consumes 20% of that energy despite the fact that it only represents only 2% of the total body weight. The energy is vital for maintaining healthy brain cells and fueling nerve impulses. The number of neurons present in the brain is approximately 100 billion which is about 15 times of the total human population on earth. This high number of neurons increases the processing ability of the brain. human brain is regarded as the fattest organ in the human body. About 60% of the human brain is comprised of fat which is the highest concentration of fat that is present in a single organ in a healthy human being. Furthermore, 75% of the total brain mass is comprised of water which regulates various functions in the brain.

      The nervous system is responsible for sending, receiving and interpreting information from all parts of the body. Just like what's the essence of being an accountant we send and receive quantitative data and we interpret all of the gathered data in order to give our clients a reliable financial statements needed by their firm/business. All of us our given the command center known to be the brain in order to perceived and understand the happenings in our surroundings. The brain has parts that made it perform its task. It is our brain that upholds all the memories from the past, the source of information and helps an individual to think properly on how to respond to usual or even unusual situations in life. It is really astonishing how our brain do a number of function which I, myself cannot imagine. So in company the boss serves as the brain but not all the time because accountants or even other members of the company may voice out their scheme for the progress of the business.

      The human brain is the most complex organ in the human body and probably the most complex creation present on this universe. It is evident that, the world’s greatest man made wonders are a result of the human brain making it the most amazing feature in a human being. The human brain with its complexity acts like a storage device which holds safely a person’s most cherished memories. A person’s personality is by far influenced by the brain as well as generation of human consciousness which gives a person passion, motion and emotion. A command center for the central nervous system, the brain serves human beings with ample physical and cognitive abilities.

      There are lots of brain functions, here are some of its function, it allows us to think, to store information and memories and it controls our body. Our brain is divided in several parts with different roles. An example is the cerebrum, it allows us to learn and memorize the things around us.The brain is the most complex organ in the human body. It produces our every thought, action, memory, feeling and experience of the world.

      Much of the brain's physiological task involves receiving information from the rest of the body, interpreting that information, and then guiding the body's response to it. Types of input the brain interprets include odors, light, sounds, and pain. The brain also helps perform vital operations such as breathing, maintaining blood pressure, and releasing hormones (chemical signals that control certain cells and organs). The brain is divided into sections. These sections include the cerebrum, the cerebellum, the diencephalon, and the brainstem. Each of these parts is responsible for certain portions of the brain's overall job. The larger parts are, in turn, divided into smaller areas that handle smaller portions of the work. Different areas often share responsibility for the same task. The cerebrum is the largest part of the brain. It is responsible for memory, speech, the senses, emotional response, and more. It is divided into several sections called lobes. These lobes are referred to as the frontal, temporal, parietal, and occipital; each handles a specific segment of the cerebrum's jobs. The cerebellum is below and behind the cerebrum and is attached to the brain stem. It controls motor function, the body's ability to balance, and its ability to interpret information sent to the brain by the eyes, ears, and other sensory organs. The functions the brain stem governs include respiration, blood pressure, some reflexes, and the changes that happen in the body during what is called the “fight or flight” response. The brain stem is also divided into several distinct sections: the midbrain, pons, and medulla oblongata. The diencephalon is inside the cerebrum above the brain stem. Its tasks include sensory function, food intake control, and the body's sleep cycle. As with the other parts of the brain, it is divided into sections. These include the thalamus, hypothalamus, and epithalamus. The brain is protected from damage by several layers of defenses. Outermost are the bones of the skull. Beneath the skull are the meninges, a series of sturdy membranes that surround the brain and spinal cord. Inside the meninges, the brain is cushioned by fluid. Still, the brain can suffer damage, become diseased, or malfunction. These problems may include cancer, physical injuries such as skull fractures, and ruptures of blood vessels that supply the brain.

      It is made up of more than 100 billion nerves that communicate in trillions of connections called synapses.

      The brain is made up of many specialized areas that work together:

      The cortex is the outermost layer of brain cells. Thinking and voluntary movements begin in the cortex.

      • The brain stem is between the spinal cord and the rest of the brain. Basic functions like breathing and sleep are controlled here.

      • The basal ganglia are a cluster of structures in the center of the brain. The basal ganglia coordinate messages between multiple other brain areas.

      • The cerebellum is at the base and the back of the brain. The cerebellum is responsible for coordination and balance.
