World Brain Day 2014


Brain is the most amazing and complex organ in the human body

Body.pngThe human brain consists of millions and millions of electrical wires which are known as axons.

This distance is the equivalent of travelling around the earth four times in a row! It is thought that there are about eighty billion neurons within the human brain. There are about ten trillion connections between these neurons which help us to read, write, watch, learn, plan, think, feel, move and solve problems on a daily basis.

Our brains are at a crossroads now!

One in three of us will get dementia or stroke during our life time. This can occur at any age-any time-anywhere!

Both these disorders are preventable-treatable for the most part.
