For your reading pleasure. Deliberations from Sri Nairs’ talk/April 2010
Thinking and Emotional brain actionsThe ability to think sets us apart from the animal kingdom. Of course theability to think is linked to our other unique skills. Without one, the othercould not have developed to put humans in pole position as the dominantspecies on the planet earth. But how did that happen? The simple answer isthat man evolved over millions of years to be a hunter and problem solverwhile his partner evolved to defend the home. The age old partnership ofman and woman is newly threatened by our modern lifestyle and some arguein the interests of equality, is no longer applicable, since a woman is every bitas capable of being the breadwinner in the modern world.The new modern world we have created for ourselves and our relationshipsto other humans, male and female, will undoubtedly influence how the braindevelops in the future. You may have noticed students seen to get bettergrades each year. This is no accident. Look to the many advanced learningtoys and look to computers. Also, take a look at how mass production ismaking basic tools more affordable, engines, wheels, metals. Then there arebuilding materials, etc. Most of the controls now holding back our creativityare regulatory. Rules and the law.
HOW THE HUMAN BRAIN EVOLVED
We slowly ascended from lower life forms to what we are today, by aprocess of natural selection from randomly occurring changes. Each change

had to prove its worth by surviving the continual battle for existence, beingagainst being, species against species and this process has gone on for manymillions of years.As far as we know the human brain evolved in three main stages. Its ancientand primitive part is the innermost core reptilian brain. Next was themammalian brain by adding new functions and new ways of controlling thebody. Then evolved the third part of the brain, the neocortex, the greymatter, the bulk of the brain in two symmetrical hemispheres, separate butcommunicating. To a considerable extent it is our neocortex which enables usto behave like human beings.So the human brain consists of these three different but interconnectedbrains and the way in which these three brains interact with each otherunderlies human behavior. How the brain evolved and functions is exploredand described in the immediately following chapters which cover how thebrain evolved, sleep and sleeping, dreaming and dreams, and how we learn,memorise and remember.From this article you may be able to see how the functioning of the humanbrain and of the human mind determines behavior. However, what you maylearn here raises a host of questions which need answering. Questions suchas why do we have to struggle for a better life and what motivates us ashuman beings.

ALL ANIMALS HAVE BRAINS
 Every animal you can think of - mammals, birds, reptiles, fish, amphibians -all have a brain, some dinosaurs had two brains. But the human brain isunique. It gives us the power to think, plan, speak, imagine. It is truly anamazing organ and our most precious resource.The brain performs an incredible number of tasks:
 
It controls body temperature, blood pressure, heart rate andbreathing.
 
It accepts a flood of information about the world around you from your various senses (eyes, ears, nose, etc.).
 
It handles physical motion when walking, talking, standing or sitting.
 
It lets you think, dream, reason and experience emotions.All of these tasks are coordinated, controlled and regulated by an organ thatis about the size of a small head of cauliflower: your brain.Your brain, spinal cord and peripheral nerves make up a complex, integratedinformation-processing and control system. The scientific study of the brainand nervous system is called
neuroscience
or
neurobiology
. Because the fieldof neuroscience is so vast, and the brain and nervous system so complex, wemust will start at the beginning and give you an overview of this amazingorgan.Fascinating is the way in which work is divided between the two halves ofthe brain, their different functions and the way in which they supplementand co-operate with each other.
