Study of the brain is intensely complicated. It is a lifelong process that has provided an incredible amount of insight into many facets of life, from overcoming personal challenges to enlightenment, and often a more fulfilled life. Not everyone wants to be involved in the study of the brain and, in fact, when it comes to the study of the brain, there are so many aspects to it that one could search their entire life for an answer to a question about the brain and never find it.
The study of the brain is like the study of the universe, only more complex. By having dedicated professionals devote their lives to the study of the brain, we know so much more about it now than we ever have, but there is so much still to learn.
What the study of the brain has already taught us
The brain controls every aspect of human life. From the simple acts of breathing and having our hearts beat to conjuring up stories from thin air. The brain is the cornerstone of all human life. When the brain does not function properly, a person cannot live up to their full potential. When the brain becomes injured, then certain processes either become impossible or much more complicated.
We already know that the right hemisphere of the brain controls the left side of the body. We know that the left side controls the right part of the body. We know that impulse control comes from the frontal lobe and that images our eyes pick up is interpreted in the read portion of the brain. Those are the basics gleaned from the study of the brain.
What else do we know? When drugs are introduced to the body, some will affect the brain. They can kill brain cells, or neurons, causing the brain to have to find another pathway for information that used to travel along the initial lines that are now dead and closed off to the rest of the body. While this may not seem like a major dilemma, it can have a devastating effect on a person, often without them knowing about it or realizing why these changes are occurring.
The study of the brain
The study of the brain has allowed us to understand that these changes that occur due to drugs, for example, can be responsible for poor judgment, a lack of self control, and even over time to an increase in anger and aggression. The study of the brain has taught us that while the damage done by drugs and alcohol, for example, is permanent, the effects that they cause do not have to be.
A person can change the way they think, they can alter the way that their brain processes information, and they can change the way they respond to certain stimuli, events, or thoughts. The study of the brain has offered countless pieces of a great puzzle, but there is still a long way to go before we fully understand how the brain works or how we can use it to our full advantage.
Old myths are debunked through study of the brain
How many times have people heard that we only use, essentially, a small portion of our brain? Many people hear while they are growing up that we only use 10% of our brain, but that is not the case. In fact, most people use every part of his or her brain for just about every function in their life.
Some functions required many different regions of the brain to work simultaneously, putting information together, processing it, and passing it along to other regions of the brain. This all happens at lightning speed and much of it is still too complex to fully grasp.
What does it all mean?
When we talk about the study of the brain, one might wonder what the point is? The brain is unique and powerful and having the right tools can help anyone overcome just about any challenge they face in life, from being stressed or unhappy at work to feeling lost or alone, even when surrounded by a large family.
If you or someone you know has feelings of stress, anxiety, or depression, or doesn’t feel as though they are living the life they should, or if they have an addiction, the brain is the place where all of this can be changed.
