MAIN BODY FUNCTION
The brain is the control centre for actions, reactions and sensations. The brain has two main parts: the higher centre and the lower centre. The cortex or cerebral hemisphere is the main part of the brain
(80%); it consists of grey matter, or 10 million nerve cells, the centre of thoughts, intelligence, memory, speech, hearing, vision and the direction of physical actions. The lower centre (cerebellum) controls unconscious actions such as balance, posture and movement. The brain stem controls respiration, heart rate, blood vessel size, swallowing, production of saliva and digestive enzymes. Also within the brain are three main glands. The pituitary produces growth hormones, sex hormones, milk hormones and, as the ‘master gland’, controls other glands: thyroid, adrenal, pancreas and sex glands. The pineal gland is the spiritual centre of the brain. The thalamus gland is responsible for feelings of pain. The hypothalamus gland regulates body temperature, blood, water and salt balance.
