The human brain is the most complex object in the known universe. While the brain has baffled us for many centuries, we are finally beginning to understand how it works, but more importantly, how the study of the brain is key to answering questions from neuroscience to even marketing. The human brain is the command center of the human nervous system. It produces and processes our every thought, action, memory, feeling, and experience in this world. To put it simply, it receives signals from body organs and sends this information to muscles. What was once a simple organ that was key to bodily functions has taken scientists and engineers on a rollercoaster ride throughout the 21st century. With advances in fields like machine intelligence, deep learning, and electrode hardware, scientists are able to understand thoughts and perceptions at the base level, something that has never been achieved before.
After just a few simple steps, you can learn about all the functionalities of the brain and how each part interacts with another to form the most complex organ in the human body.
