Now spring is in the air and i can really feel how it affects me psychologically. I feel it in this thing in my head helping to contain my body. The brain. The brain would always be an intriguing phenomenon to me. All brains. Under-developed. Over-developed (in one’s own eyes). Non-used brains. Over-used brains. I like to keep it simple when learning about this large mass in my skull. So here are a few cool random facts about what you have in your head...
