The Amazing Human Brain!

  • The human brain contains about 86 BILLION neurons (nerve cells)!
  • Our brain is the largest brain out of all vertebrates (relative to body size).
  • The human brain has more neurons per volume than any animal.  The folds in the outer cortex make this possible.
  • Our brains have the largest frontal lobes of any animal.  The frontal lobes are associated with higher level thinking such as logic, planning, and self-control.
  • The brain is divided into sections such as the cerebrum; brainstem; cerebellum; and the cerebral cortex, which consists of 4 lobes.  Read more about what each section does here..
  • What's my point? Your brain is amazing.  God designed and created it.  It is more advanced than any computer or iphone.  It is unique among living things
