Is This A No Brainer? … Can Questions CURE? #3

Issue 29.15

Part TWO:

What are some miracles about my Brain Function that I may want to be grateful for?

Most of the time, we are so used to our brain functioning smoothly and automatically that we don’t take a lot of time to think about what is going on underneath. Walking, eating, and discussing a book…all of these things seem very natural and easy, but in truth, each and every one is done through a series of functions that the brain performs. In order to really understand the abilities of the brain, as well as the limitations, you need to be doing much more than brain teasers and games on line!  It is also important to look at some of the things you probably didn’t know about:

3 – Interpret Sensory Information

When you smell a sweet, smoky, buttery scent, do you recognize it as chocolate? Could you recognize that you are petting a cat versus a dog? In both cases, yes, you will and this is because your brain is able to interpret sensory information.

4 – Theory of Mind

How would you feel if your friend suddenly announced their promotion at work?  You would probably be extremely happy and be able to imagine exactly what they were thinking. This is due to the brain function known as theory of mind meaning you have insight into other people’s worlds.
