These Brain Facts Will Hurt Your Head

One of the things that makes us a few steps ahead of the strongest animal is our brain. It gives us the ability to think, reason, remember, and learn in a way that’s exceeds other animals and creations from the man above.

Take a look at 10 unique facts about the Human brain:

  1. The human brain weighs 3 pounds
  2. It’s one of the fattest organs of the body because it’s made of 60% fat.
  3. It’s full of light (literally) because it can generate approximately 23 watts of power when awake.
  4. Out of your total blood flow and oxygen produced in the body, the brain gets 20% of it.
  5. In fact, the brain starts losing consciousness almost 8 seconds after blood supply stops flowing to the brain.
  6. The brain is capable of surviving within a 5-6 window if there’s no oxygen. Otherwise, it’ll die.
  7. The blood vessels in the brain are nearly 10,000 miles long.
  8. Made of 100 billion neurons
  9. In the early stages of pregnancy, neurons grow quickly at a rate of 250,000 per minute.
  10. As we grow older, we don’t remember new things because the brain isn’t able to filter and remove the old memories that still linger in our head.

A brain model would be a nice way to teach some of the important functions to kids.
