The human brain sets us apart from all other species on Earth by enabling us to achieve all sorts of wonders that practically no other species have been able to do.
Feats such as walking on the moon, composing masterpieces of art, literature, music, innovating and incorporating technology into our lives... all these have been made possible because of that spongy, three-pound mass of fatty tissue.
Yet, for all of its comparisons to our own modern technological innovations – such as a telephone switchboard and supercomputer – the human brain is a far more complex mechanism than we can ever imagine.
Despite the vast leap in technological advancements, we still have yet to discover the full extent of the human brain's capabilities.
