The Brain

Mmm brains... from neuroscience to neuroplasticity.

What’s firm like jelly, weighs around 1.4kg (3 pounds) and contains 86 billion nerve cells? Here’s a clue: you’re using it right now to read this.

The Brain is one of the largest and most complex organs in the human body – it’s the controller of thoughts, speech, vision, memory, respiration, touch and movement. If your body was a business, your brain is the top boss, giving orders to all departments.

Contrary to popular belief, we don’t just use 10% of our brains. In fact, the majority of the brain is almost always active over a 24-hour period. Every day, the average person has about 12,000 to 60,000 thoughts per day. Of those, 95% are exactly the same repetitive thoughts as the day before, and about 80% are negative.
