10 Amazing Facts About Your Brain!

The human brain is the most complex and least understood part of the human anatomy. There may be a lot we don’t know, but here are a few interesting facts that we’ve got covered.

1. Nerve impulses to and from the brain travel as fast as 170 miles per hour. Ever wonder how you can react so fast to things around you or why that stubbed toe hurts right away? It’s due to the super-speedy movement of nerve impulses from your brain to the rest of your body and vice versa, bringing reactions at the speed of a high powered luxury sports car. 2. The brain operates on the same amount of power as 10-watt light bulb. The cartoon image of a light bulb over your head when a great thought occurs isn’t too far off the mark. Your brain generates as much energy as a small light bulb even when you’re sleeping. 3. The human brain cell can hold 5 times as much information as the Encyclopedia Britannica. Or any other encyclopedia for that matter. Scientists have yet to settle on a definitive amount, but the storage capacity of the brain in electronic terms is thought to be between 3 or even 1,000 terabytes. The National Archives of Britain, containing over 900 years of history, only takes up 70 terabytes, making your brain’s memory power pretty darn impressive. 4. Your brain uses 20% of the oxygen that enters your bloodstream. The brain only makes up about 2% of our body mass, yet consumes more oxygen than any other organ in the body, making it extremely susceptible to damage related to oxygen deprivation. 5. The brain is much more active at night than during the day. Logically, you would think that all the moving around, complicated calculations and tasks and general interaction we do on a daily basis during our working hours would take a lot more brain power than, say, lying in bed. Turns out, the opposite is true. When you turn off your brain turns on. Scientists don’t yet know

why this is but you can thank the hard work of your brain while you sleep for all those pleasant dreams. 6. Scientists say the higher your I.Q. the more you dream. While this may be true, don’t take it as a sign you’re mentally lacking if you can’t recall your dreams. Most of us don’t remember many of our dreams and the average length of most dreams is only 2-3 seconds–barely long enough to register. 7. Neurons continue to grow throughout human life. For years scientists and doctors thought that brain and neural tissue couldn’t grow or regenerate. While it doesn’t act in the same manner as tissues in many other parts of the body, neurons can and do grow throughout your life, adding a whole new dimension to the study of the brain and the illnesses that affect it. 8. Information travels at different speeds within different types of neurons. Not all neurons are the same. There are a few different types within the body and transmission along these different kinds can be as slow as 0.5 meters/sec or as fast as 120 meters/sec. 9. The brain itself cannot feel pain. While the brain might be the pain center when you cut your finger or burn yourself, the brain itself does not have pain receptors and cannot feel pain. That doesn’t mean your head can’t hurt. The brain is surrounded by loads of tissues, nerves and blood vessels that are plenty receptive to pain and can give you a pounding headache. 10. 80% of the brain is water. Your brain isn’t the firm, gray mass you’ve seen on TV. Living brain tissue is a squishy, pink and jelly-like organ thanks to the loads of blood and high water content of the tissue. So the next time you’re feeling dehydrated get a drink to keep your brain hydrated.

A great deal of thought is required before making the decision to purchase a pet. Even though having a pet can be a great antidote to loneliness, you should never shop for one in the same way you shop for a pair of shoes. You have to be ready to invest time, care, and affection to build a relationship with a little animal friend. Weigh the pros and cons carefully when the time comes to choose the creature who will share your living space. The first question to ask yourself is what you prefer—fur, feathers, or scales. Find out about the species, race, and temperament of the animal in question and ensure that you are compatible. Cats, dogs, birds, hamsters, reptiles, and fish have very different physical and emotional needs. Choosing an animal simply to show off will likely backfire, leaving you with a pet you can’t really love or take care of properly. When you’re ready to welcome your chosen pet into your home, remember that new surroundings can be a source of stress for the animal. Expect a few

bumps; you will both need time to adapt. As a responsible owner, you will want to have the health of your pet checked by a veterinarian who is qualified to examine your animal, diagnose any possible health problems, carry out surgery, repair fractures, administer vaccines, treat and dress injuries, or give advice on animal care. These professionals, who usually work in private clinics, mainly treat dogs and cats but are often willing to look at parrots, ferrets, rabbits, Vietnamese pigs, or other types of animals. Some vets specialize in the use of the latest technologies, including laser, ultrasound, and medical imaging. Scheduling regular check-ups with the veterinarian is the surest way to guarantee a long and healthy life for your new pet.
