Your brain is a many-splendor thing. Whether we’re playing chess, reading, giving a speech, or sleeping- the brain is a highly responsive and fine-tuned organ. The brain’s perception of the world can even change our feelings – whether it’s anger, frustration, satisfaction, or elated happiness, so it is important to keep your brain happy and healthy!
The brain is a vast, complicated network of highly- electrical nerves surrounded by fatty tissue for insulation. Just like a piece of wire is made up of copper strands to conduct electricity and enveloped by a plastic and rubber insulation, your brain tissue and nervous system functions in a similar – though certainly much more complicated—way.
When the outer insulation—or myelin sheath—of nervous tissue is damaged, wires get crossed and tangled, signals become mismanaged and quite a bit of confusion can result. Damage to brain tissue is thought to be a result of inflammation, age, and possibly our diet.
