The complexity of human brain is beyond our understanding. We understand each other at the primary levels, many levels still remain untouched.

I was looking for ,”what is the difference between brain and mind?”  Here is what I found on searching at,”Your brain is part of the visible, tangible world of the body. Your mind is part of the invisible, transcendent world of thought, feeling, attitude, belief and imagination. The brain is the physical organ most associated with mind and consciousness, but the mind is not confined to the brain.”

Talking about human brain and mind. I always wonder,’ what goes in beautiful minds of tiny beings’. How are they processing information? How do they learn things? When do they realise they are individuals? Babies pay a lot of attention to  sounds,voices, noises before they begun using their sights. Babys grow tremendously in their first year. The growth rate in babies is fastest of their life-time. From a newly born to adulthood; human beings continue to learn new things, new skills and that translates into a lot of information getting stored in memory. Human brain has amazing capacity to process information.Alison Gopnik explains beautifuly about “What do babies think?” on tedtalk.

Wondering about human brain; here is an interesting fact: “The brain processes 400 Billion bits of information a second. BUT, we are ONLY aware of 2,000 of those?” -Dr. Joseph Dispenza, D.C. The average “clock speed” of neurons in the brain is a mere 200 firings per second.” Brain processes information and stores it. Driven by my curiosity I went on looking for answers on Tedtalks. “How does the brain work? How does it create inventions, the feeling of hunger, the sense of self?  Watch these TED talks on the latest science of how we think”.TedTalks on brain is very informative and cover a variety  of topics.


This beautiful picture of Grand Canyon reminds me of layers in our brain and complexity of our mind.
