Some Interesting Info on the Brain

1. You need oxygen and glucose to exert your will – so it’s harder say ‘no’ when you’re feeling tired.

2. Although most of us are either left brained or right brained, we all switch sides briefly every 90 to 120 minutes.

3. The brain is approximately 75% water.

4. Information moves around the brain at a minimum speed of 260 mph.

5. There are no pain receptors in the brain.

6. The brain contains something called mirror neurons. Thus, if you see someone else fall and cut themselves you’ll automatically flinch in reaction to their pain.

7. Giving to charity or helping other people lights up the pleasure centre in the brain.

8. The brain doesn’t record videos of experiences. It takes snapshots of important parts and leaves the person to fill in the gaps. This can also lead to false memories.

9. The brain can’t concentrate for long periods of time so we need to take breaks to learn efficiently.

10. Effective multitasking is an urban myth as the brain can only fully concentrate on one task at a time. Any more than that leads to a decrease in performance.
