So what exactly is the “Brain”?


It's the basic control room of your body, the organ that is responsible for regulating, thinking, walking, eating and about everything else that your body needs to do.
The brain consists of a number of basic parts: the cerebrum, the cerebellum and the medulla, or brain stem are the main parts of the brain.

The cerebrum is the biggest part of the brain and the part that controls thinking and higher-level processes. It is divided into “lobes”, each of which has a different role.

Here's what each lobe of the cerebrum does:

The FRONTAL lobe is what 'thinks', it is the part of the brain that takes care of planning, emotion and solving problem.

The PARIETAL lobe has to do with perceptual functions, like recognizing objects for what they are.

The OCCIPITAL lobe handles the processing of visual information.

The TEMPORAL lobe is associated with memory, speech and auditory information.


The cerebellum is located in lower back of the brain and is responsible for regulating coordination, movement and balance.

Damage to the cerebellum can result in tremors, slurred speech, and movement disorders.
Just under the cerebellum lies the limbic system, a series of structures that control functions such as memory, body temperature and emotion.

The medulla or brain stem is the lower part of the brain that connects to the spinal cord. It is responsible for automatic functions, such as breathing and blood pressure.
