Brain Basics – How It Works
I wanted to put together a collection of articles that help us to understand some of the more interesting things we’ve discovered about how the brain actually works.
- An article describing the different parts of the brain and what they do.
- Another article describing how the brain operates in more detail from “How Stuff Works” – offering a general introduction and covering: neurons, basic brain parts, instincts, lower / higher brain areas, how the brain is hard-wired, and how it is integrated into the skull.
- A clickable cross-section of the brain (Brodermann Area).
- The Temporal lobe.
- How the brain recalls past events.
