The neuroscientist David Eagelman sees that all human achievements on earth and in space are due to the brain's ability to form and adapt to the data, while human brain tangles fade like forest paths that are not used.
We think, plan, remember and pay little attention to the vast calculator that enables us all to do so, but a new book provides an insight into the journey our brains are taking and the changes in its network according to life experiences.
Neurologist David Eagelman's book "The Brain" speaks of a fantastic network in our brains, forming and focusing on the special life of the human being rather than the abstract brain mechanisms behind it.
Eagelman says that this book "will not provide preliminary information, but will raise curiosity and the desire to examine the self."
The author explains that the human brain is not ready at birth when compared to the other animal world "since the control panel does not exist then, instead the genes provide approximate guidance on the construction of this network and allow the brain to adapt to the data," while many of the Animals see the light of life with instincts and fixed behaviors, ie, something like an entangled brain, according to the author.
The brain of the young child is composed of every two seconds, up to two million connections, so-called synapses. "When the child is two years old, he has more than 100 trillion These neurotic tangles, twice that of an adult, "that is, brain tangles that are not used by humans fade away like jungle paths that are not used.
In the example of the children of shelters, the author explains how our environment makes us grow to be what we are. He said that the process of brain formation lasts about 25 years. "In youth, the process of restructuring takes place comprehensively, which makes this period a decisive influence on our being."
The study deals with the extent to which memories are deceitful and how to remember an event that may differ depending on the age and events that separate the memories from the memories it wants to retrieve. The memory is not a precise picture of a specific moment, "He said.
The role of memory is to record critical events so that vital information for a human being is ready in case I need it
He explains in detail the senses of the human being starting from the prevailing sense, the vision, and says that a giant device is necessary to show us things completely normal, and adds, "About a third of the brain busy switching light cells to the face of your mother and your cat and your arm.
Prisoners of solitary cells live with dreams that seem to them to be quite real, a sign that the brain produces its own reality before it receives information from the eye and other senses.
The author explains that we are only aware of a small section of truth, and that this is no different from a blind insect tick blind but can in contrast to feel the body and smell or a bat knows its destination by relying on sound waves. The author says that there is no animal or human being who lives the practical truth. "Everyone only receives what he has learned to receive throughout his development."
The neurosurgeon then explains why people say that time passes slowly when a person experiences a dangerous situation such as a car accident or burglary. When a person is in a critical position, he has to close his eyes and close his ears because this will make him remember the events in more detail than what happens. In normal circumstances, "this is the role of memory. It is the recording of critical events so that vital information for a human being is ready in the case of what he needs when he is in a similar situation."
In the author's opinion, the important side effect of this is that the brain used to recall the anniversary in much less detail analyzes the intensity of the details as if the situation took much longer time, "that is, we do not live the events of slow return slow, but we get the impression only when we try to retrieve, .
He describes in other parts of the book why the fact that what prevents a person from making good decisions for the future is that the options directly in front of him reside higher than the options that are simulated, and explains why the long-married partners seem to resemble each other with passing Time and what are the strange ways that have come to exist to transmit visual information through an unusual way to the brain such as tongue or back, for example.
The author elaborates on the expansion of the human body through sensors and technical aids. "Perhaps today we humans have more common factors with our ancestors in the Stone Age than with our grandchildren after us."
Eagelman describes the theory that consciousness is automatically formed by the interaction of billions of brain parts. And look at the future, a time when a man may have left his body behind him. The book, along with sensational interpretations and conceptually designed drawings and pictures, also presents.
