Amazing Facts About The Human Brain

The brain is one of the most vital organs and astonishing parts of the human body. It helps us think, remember, reason, and learn new things, taking only a tiny space compared to the entire human body.

Unfortunately, an average person does not know much about the brain and we often ignore the amazing nature of it. The human brains weigh around three pounds and it contains 60 percent of fat, and it is considered as one of the fattiest organs in the human body.  Here you can find some more astonishing facts of our super powerful, organic computers.

The brain itself can not feel pain:

Did you ever think how about the doctors are able to do surgeries on patients while they are completely awake? The Medical Director and Neurologist Beth McQuiston MD at Abbott says that, though the brain has layers of blood vessels and coverings that have pain receptors, the brain itself can not feel the pain.  When individuals suffer from headache, and they feel that their brain is hurting, but, it is absolutely not the case. The skin and muscles surrounding the brain feel the pain.  According to the experts, there are around sixteen signs your headache pain could be something worse.

The Human Brain is Greedy:

The Human brain weighs only around 3% of the human body weight, but it gets around 30% of blood, pumped by the heart. This proves that the brain of a human needs more support and attention it needs comparing to other important parts of the human body.  The human brain is like a demanding child, but it is very efficient and smart, says Bennet Omalu a forensic pathologist, D, Epidemiologist, Neuropathologist, Clinical Professor and the UCA (University of California) Dr. Davis and he also the author of “Truth Doesn’t Have a Side.”  The human brain takes just 1/10,000th of a second to react and generate an action. 

Humans actually use most of their brain, most of the time:

In general, people believe that they do use only a small portion of their brain, which is not true at all. It is a myth. Brett Wingeier, a Neuroscientist, Engineer, Ph.D., and co-found of Halo Neuroscience says that this misconception spread because people feel that the brain is very adaptable and sometimes small damage can cause only small problems.  He says, the fact is, most of the human brain works constantly, to process, sense, think, dream, and move.  The human brain works hard even when people sleeping at night.
