You sit in class listening to your teacher when you zone out and start thinking, how do our brains work? Our brains are very complicated, yet very special. According to Dr. Freudenrich and Dr. Boyd, they say, “Your brain is made of approximately 100 billion nerve cells, called neutrons. Neutrons have the amazing ability to gather and transmit electrochemical signals -- think of them like the gates and wires in a computer.” This proves that our brains are very complicated and important. Without a brain, you literally cannot survive. Not only that, but your brain lets you do everyday tasks such as moving and speaking. In this essay, I will be explaining what our minds do while sleeping, how we remember things, what the main parts of our brains are and what they do, and overall, how our brain works. For example, did you know that there is the forebrain, the midbrain, and the hindbrain? It is interesting on how many parts of the brain there are and there are definitely more than three. Though our brains are not the biggest part of our bodies they are definitely one of the most complicated and crucial parts of our bodies.
