• Function of The Human Brain

I'm sure we're all familiar with the task of the Human brain on our bodies and the impact it has on our actions. But are you familiar with a detailed analysis of the human brains' main job in our system and the invaluable processes it carries out daily to help us circulate thoughts. I'm writing this article to help you understand more clearly the goings-on inside the labyrinths of your intellect.

The brain is divided into different sections called 'lobes' and 'Cortex's' each of these sections play a vital role in the development and procedures required for fabricating feelings and emotions. Lets start with the prefrontal cortex. The prefrontal cortex is the anterior part of the frontal lobes of the brain, ahead of the motor and pre motor. It is responsible for restraining the human from committing a morally or socially wrong act or an act the human deems improper, detecting the error of the humans ways and spurring it to correct the errors and plays a role in cognitive processing which I shall explore in much more detail in other articles.

The Limbic system tells us the more complex side of the brain. The forebrain of the Limbic structures and hypothalamus are paramount to the instigation of locating food, evading predators and other miscellaneous behaviours essential for adaptation and survival. This is shown in many action adventures and natural disaster films when a protagonist flees the enemy or seeks out a sustainable food resource to endure the apocalypse. Results in anatomy in years gone by now make it possible to examine the neural interface between Limbic and motor systems and their functions.
