The human brain is often compared to a computer. Both receive input, process information and produce output. However the three-pound organ inside your head is far more complex, powerful and capable than even the most advanced computer. This program makes the comparison to show students what is known - and what researchers have yet to discover - about how our brains process and store information. Students will learn how the brain uses chemical messengers to control the body and some ways scientists are learning more about our amazing brains!
