Amazing Things You Probably Didn’t Know About the Human Brain

The human body is such a complex network of connective tissues, muscles and organs that those who are not adept in science probably do not even realize how amazing it all manages to work together to form what is practically you.  Maybe you didn’t really give it that much thought, or that you believe you already know everything necessary.  Well, in such cases, here are some interesting trivia for you to take a look at, particularly about the amazing organ known as the brain.  These just might actually add up to around 70,001 thoughts in your daily schedule (you’ll get what we mean).

You Process of THOUSANDS of Thoughts!

The brain actually processes about 70,000 thoughts on a daily basis. Yes, that many!

Ever had that feeling of déjà vu before?  Here’s something interesting then…

Artificial Preservatives and Additives Impact the Brain

Things that you probably didn’t know about artificial ingredients but are now aware of… See, this is exactly why home-cooked meals are healthy.

A person with half a  brain... Is still a person, obviously.

Believe it or not, you can still live even if you have a portion of your brain removed. For people who experience seizures often or those who are epileptic, there's this surgical procedure called Hemispherectomy. What it is it? Well, half of the brain is removed or disabled to cure the problem.

Babies have big Craniums

The reason why babies have such huge craniums is that the brain was about as big as it would be now, in your age, that is. In case you're wondering what's a cranium, it's the "brain case" -- the part of the skull that encloses the brain.

Literally brain POWER

Amazing enough, this fact gives basis to what they say "brain power". But yeah, just don’t think of sticking a socket up your nostril or anything of the sort.

Brains Can't Resist Temptation

You can't blame yourself if you can't resist noticing food, someone attractive, or danger. It's obviously inherent and natural. So with that said -- time to hone those witty commenting skills, my friends.

You have thousands of thoughts -- everyday.

Time to ante up the mysterious aura and be as fascinating as possible so you will have a reason to say this during a conversation.

Fattest Organ

What about people who keep stating they only have 2% fat in their body? They are obviously wrong. You have more fat in your body than you think.

Removing Brains from the Dead in Ancient Egypt

In Ancient Egypt, they were all about the concept of reincarnation and making sure the dead goes to the "next life" with all his riches. Apparently they didn't regard the brain as one of them. When a person dies, they pull out his brain -- from his nose. But yeah, he is buried with all his other body parts and organs.

Brain is Quicker than a Race Car

This is how fast your brain picks up everything. You often wish your data plan moved as fast as this, right?

Doors Make the Brain Forget

“So yeah, me and this girl were, like…*passes through door* … Wait, what was I talking about?”
