The Human Brain

Brain Structure & Its Functions:

Human brain is divided into old brain (or called original brain) and new brain. Old brain is actually the basic equation of genetic factors. It multiples the division from only 0.23 cm from conception until more than 10 thousand million brain cells in the 7th month of pregnancy.

As we grow older, the area of old brain will become smaller. Generally, the basic nervous tissues in our brain are the subsidiaries, which is inheritance and only able in some minor activates such as hoarse, cry, and voices when asleep. The nerve liaison net will develop quickly during the growing period in baby, infant and juvenile levels. Old brain is more primitive, it in charged of some undetectable physiology activities, for example controlling the body temperature, blood pressure, chemical equilibrium, digestion process, emotion and sub-consciousness. It is also known as "sub-conscious brain" or "lower brain" because of its lower location in the overall brain. Our cerebrum is divided into right brain and left-brain. Both the brains are located at upper right and upper left of the cerebrum and is the "consciousness brain" or "new brain" which is evolution in part and responsible for the intellectual activities.

According to the analysis done by The Winner of Noble Award 1981, Dr. Roger Sperry from the University of California and Dr. Robert Ornstein, a psychologist and brain researcher at Stanford University: -

Our cerebrum is divided into right brain and left-brain. The left-brain in charge of the logic, literary, numerical, analytical, sequential, factual and remembrance, whereas the right brain is responsible for the color, music, imagination, senses, rhymes, daydreaming, patterns and overall thinking.

Some people, especially children are still possessing intuition image, which is able to keep their remembrance on certain objects in their network after paying a quick glance onto it. This kind of memory is called "parallel conducted memory" or "overall conducted memory". If this could be acquired through training, we would need only 1% of time and energy to remember perpetually certain things in our mind.

However, the left-brain will obtain its only memory by the theoretical sequence, thus it takes longer time to do so. This "contractual conducted memory" causes students to spend longer time in their learning and are not as efficient.

In this technology-changed generation, what we seek is not merely the education of left-brain but the development of the cerebrum as a whole.

According to the analysis from experiments, the cerebrum consists of thousands of million tiny cells called Nervous Cell. Each of these nervous cells is just like an octopus with a center called nucleus and a huge number of small barbells spread all over to. There are thousand of small tubercles on each of the barbell, which can double hit with other tubercles to form circuits. Therefore the cerebrum is actually a complicated circuit network. The level of one's intelligence is not determined by the size of the cerebrum but by the effectiveness of the whole network. Those with outstanding intelligence possessing excellent network with 10 to 15 billion cells communicate smoothly, whereas the network of those with lower intelligence are poorer where each of the cell has to work harder independently, therefore the thinking ability is slower.

According to the report from psychologist, Professor Anokhin, the total passage of the cerebrum is believed to have more than 15 million km long (if all the cells are connected). No wonder, Professor Anokhin said that, up to now, none of the people can really fully utilize function of the cell in the brain simply because each of the passage in the cerebrum representing a group of data and information. And don’t forget that the barbell is widely spread everywhere. Human wisdom is unlimited; the cerebrum will keep growing according to the learning progress and enlarge the remembrance storage capacity accordingly.

On the whole, the basic structures of the cerebrum are the same in every newborn baby. The truth is that, the subsequent developments in the cells are from the actual reason of one's successfulness.
