    Thumbs up Amazing Facts About Your Brain

    Attachment 5152

    If you need to brush up on your knowledge of the human brain - or if you just have a LOVE of learning - look no further, because we’ve gathered up a list of some of the best brain facts on the planet. Amongst other things, you’ll learn why babies’ heads are so darned big, why a healthy lunch is good for your body and your brain, why happy thoughts will keep the doctor away and why your lover’s cologne makes your heart skip a beat.
    Check out the list, and if you’ve got more cool and interesting facts to add, please



    Fast Brain Facts

    * 3 = the weight of your brain in pounds
    * 4 to 6 = the number of minutes your brain can survive without oxygen before it starts to die
    * 8 to 10 = the number of seconds you have before losing consciousness due to blood loss
    *10 to 23 = the number of watts of power your grain generates when you’re awake (that’s enough to turn on a light bulb!)
    *20 = the percentages of oxygen and blood flow going to the brain
    *100,000 = the number of miles of blood vessels in your brain
    *1,000 to 10,000 = the number of synapses for each neuron in your brain
    *100 billion = the number of neurons in your brain



    Baby Brains

    *Each person has about the same number of brain cells at birth as in adulthood, but those cells grow, reaching maximum size at about age six.
    *A newborn’s brain triples its size in the first year of life (no wonder BABIES have such big heads!).
    *The sense of touch is the first sense to develop in a fetus, with the lips and cheeks experiencing this sensation at eight weeks.
    *Keep exercising your brain, because mental activity stimulates the creation of new neurons throughout your whole life.




    The Memory Game


    *New connections are created each and every time you remember something or have a new thought.
    *Stronger, more intense emotional connections are linked to memories prompted by scent.
    *Memories triggered by scent (like cologne) have a stronger emotional connection, and therefore appear more intense than other memory triggers.
    *Cherish your sleep because that’s probably the best time for your brain to file away all the memories of the day.



    Things That Make You Go “Hmmm…”

    *It’s not your brain that’s hurting when you get a headache – without pain receptors, your brain can’t feel any pain.
    *Your brain knows when you tickle yourself, which is why you don’t bend over laughing.
    *Supertasters have a super power that enables them to sometimes taste flavours that others can’t detect; they have more taste buds and a brain that’s more sensitive to tastes of foods and drinks.
    *When you sleep, you’re virtually paralyzed because your brain creates a hormone to prevent you from acting out your dreams.
    *About 12% of people dream in black and white.
    *It’s not true that humans only use 10% of their brains; each part of the brain has a purpose.
