|Description:||How is it possible that every action and thought in our human body is controlled by a small organ weighing about 1.5kg? Does the size matter in determining intelligence? Apparently not! The amount of connections in the brain is more critical and we have about 100 billion neurons in our brain that are essential for our memory, daily activities and more. Be amazed by how these connections contribute to the brain’s function and how damage to the network can create life-changing repercussions. |
|Objectives:||1. Learn different parts of the brain and their function.|
2. Participate in brain exercises to appreciate the function of the brain.
3. Understand the role of neural connection in the brain.
