Brain Meaning

What is Cerebro:

The brain is part of the nervous system and is one of the organs of the brain. All vertebrate animals have a brain, although it varies in size. In all cases, the brain is located in the head, protected by the skull.

The word brain comes from Latin cerebrum, which means something like "what is on top of the head."

The brain acts as a centralizing organ for all the activities of the body. It is, therefore, the most complex organ.

A common misconception is to use the word brain as a synonym for brain, or to think that the brain is a part of the brain.

Rather, along with the cerebellum and brain stem, the cerebrum is one of the parts of the brain. What is certain is that the brain is the largest of these.

In the figurative sense, the brain is called the mastermind of a plan, that is, the person who creates, drives and coordinates the execution of a certain plan of operations (does not necessarily participate in it). For example: "Francisco Pérez was discovered to be the mastermind of the‘ casino robbery ’operation that the police thwarted last week."

A person who is very outstanding in cultural and scientific activities is also called a brain. For example: "Albert Einstein was a physics mastermind." "The neighbor's son is the brain of her classroom."

Brain functions

The brain is responsible for several vital functions. The brain enables perception through the senses of sight, smell, taste, hearing, and touch. Through the brain we perceive the signals transmitted through the eyes, ears, palate, nose and skin.

In it, cognitive and emotional operations also take place, that is, learning and emotional stimuli. In the human brain, in particular, language is processed that enables communication.

Likewise, the brain coordinates the functioning of the other organs through nerve signals. The brain controls voluntary motor commands and sends sleep signals, hunger signals, thirst signals, satiety signals, etc. The communication of the brain with the other organs is, therefore, constant.
