Introduction to Human Brain

The human brain has been called the most complex object in the known universe. In many ways it is the final frontier of science. It is a remarkable structure that defines who we are as individuals and how we experience the world. Recent advances in neuro-imaging have allowed researchers to look inside the brain, providing vivid pictures of its sub components and their associated functions.  The outer layer of the fore-brain constitutes the familiar wrinkled tissue that is the cerebral cortex, or cortex for short. The large folds in the cortex are called gyri (from the Greek, ‘circle’). The small creases within these folds are fissures (from the Greek, ‘trench’). Each hemisphere of the cortex consists of four lobes— frontal, parietal, temporal, and occipital. Other important structures are the brain-stem, cerebellum the limbic system (which includes the amygdala and hippocampus).

FUNCTIONS OF BRAIN

  • Emotion
  • Arousal
  • Language
  • Learning
  • Memory
  • Movement
  • Perception
  • Sensation
  • Thinking

Cognitive disorders

Almost without exception, cognitive disorders correlate to multiple regions in the brain. Just as the genes and biochemicals associated with cognition are expressed throughout the brain, gross structures that correlate with cognitive disorders are widespread. Some of the disorders are ADHD, Alzheimer’s autism, bipolar disorder, depression, and schizophrenia.

What is brain

Damage

It is possible for brain to repair damaged neural networks or to compensate for the loss of function in particular structures. Common impairments resultants from brain damage include deficits in attention, emotion, language, learning, memory, movement, perception and sensation.
