The human brain has several main regions: First, it is divided into the hindbrain, the midbrain, and the forebrain. 

Over the past two weeks I have been learning a lot about brains. It is a fascinating subject, and learning keeps the brain young, as they say. As a biologist, I have, of course, studied some very basic brain anatomy in college, but that was a long time ago. Not only do the details fade as a memory gets older, but also the facts change as new research emerges.

One of the biggest challenges of our fast-moving, high-technology age is that people’s skills and knowledge get outdated quickly if we don’t continuously retrain ourselves. This takes time, and in a busy lifestyle is often the last thing on the to-do list.
