Opening up your mind

Opening up your mind : “Your brain weighs 1.5kg and has a texture similar to that of a mushroom.”

Fascinating article because Professor Frith,Dr. Peter Naish and Dr. Adrian Owen have pioneered a new level of brain understanding and it would appear it is what we believe..we don’t use much of our brains!The brain does a a great deal of work without us! This article really clarifies the difference between mind and brain and has plenty of food for thought. The research will help the brain injured and people in comas and vegetative states, but it will also bring about a better understanding of something we have only claimed to have known about until recent times. We are certainly starting to get some significant research coming out now.
