Human Brain - Remarkable Organ
It is the seat of thought and memory and the control center for many bodily functions. The brain is also the hub of our many senses, interpreting information that comes from both inside and outside the body.
Our brain functions the way it does largely because of its complex chemistry and intricate networks of neurons, the primary brain cells.
The human brain has many billions of neurons, which communicate with one another through long fibers called axons.
From these, a single neuron may make many thousands of connections with other neurons by way of branching fibers called dendrites.
As a result, the total number of connections in the brain is astronomical! What is more, this dense forest of neurons and dendrites is, not chaotic, but precise. It is an amazing feat of “wiring.”
Evolution or Creation?
