Brain anatomy 🧠
.
I learned something pretty cool today. I learned about the 3 layers of the human brain and how these different parts of the brain work in unison for the sake of your functioning.
.
The reptilian brain, or the cerebellum and stem is where the most dense part of brain cells sit. This is where all your habits and unconscious functions like breathing occur.
.
The second layer is the mid brain or the limbic system. This part is known to be an active factory of chemicals that react to make what you experience to be emotions and feelings in the body.
.
The third layer is the neocortex. This is the new brain. This part is situated along the outer layer and is responsible for conscious thought. This is the part that separates human beings from every other species on the planet.
.
They say the folds in the brain are a result of the brains ambitious desire to expand and evolve. With a skull so hard and stubborn, our brain has expanded itself by creating folds so that it can fit more in this space.
.
With the introduction of new technologies, it’s clear that these things are extensions of us. We hold a whole world of knowledge within the palms of our hands. It is speeding up our lives in exponential ways.
