      The Stage Metaphor To explain how the brain works, Rock compares the brain to a stage. The stage can only accommodate so many actors before the play starts to get chaotic. When we multitask, we place more actors on our stage, and if we have too many actors, we become overloaded. The actors bump into each other and can't move about in graceful.   The Fear Factor is a fine example of a book that looks deeper, showing how an ancient part of the brain—central to our emotional lives—plays a pivotal role in who we are and what we do.

      How Our Brains Process Books. We all know how it feels to get lost in a great book. Sometimes the characters and emotions can seem every bit as real as those of our everyday lives. I DO know that scientists are working to understand HOW the brain works and are trying to figure out exactly how it is hard-wired, so they can then explain WHY we have certain reactions, develop diseases, etc.” said Ms. Buchanan.

      Reading is a complex process. It requires different areas of the brain to be activated in a coordinated and synchronised way. This video demonstrates the 'working brain' while reading. In this brief introduction to the brain, neuroscientist John Dowling conveys to the general reader the essence and vitality of the field of neuroscience-the progress we are making in understanding how brains work and some of our strategies for studying brain s: 9.

In this brief introduction to the brain, neuroscientist John Dowling conveys to the general reader the essence and vitality of the field of neuroscience-the progress we are making in understanding how brains work and some of our strategies for studying brain s:   The body of knowledge about how the brain works is growing, but so is the list of gaps in our understanding.

Larry Abbott, a former theoretical physicist, is looking for models to fill them in. Your brain contains billions of nerve cells arranged in patterns that coordinate thought, emotion, behavior, movement and sensation. A complicated highway system of nerves connects your brain to the rest of your body, so communication can occur in split seconds.

But your brain, despite being packed with billion neurons, only weighs 3 lbs and is about the size of a cauliflower. Your thoughts are generated by your mind, which as I explained, is like your brain’s software. We don’t understand everything about how it works but your mind has different layers of consciousness.

The Conscious Mind. The brain is one of your most important organs. Without it, you couldn’t breathe or walk. We’ll go over the different parts of the brain and explain what each one does. You’ll also learn. This work can range from exploring how we learn language to understanding the interplay between cognition and emotion.

New technologies like magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) allow researchers to see a picture of the brain at work — helping them to understand how a brain reacts to a particular stimulus or how differences in brain structure can. Mapping electrical signaling among the vast network of neurons is one key aspect of trying to understand how the brain works.

However, Taylor argues that when using both hemispheres, we should lean more heavily on the right brain, or her term "whole brain living." "Don't let the right brain serve the left brain.
