If there is any aspect of the world that continues to surprise and shock us, it’s the human brain. An incredibly complex and elaborate part of the human body, it controls everything from our actions and reactions to our thoughts and feelings – telling our bodies what to do, what to say and how to respond to the world around us. On top of all this, your brain stores your memories and facts and feels both pain and pleasure.
