HUMAN BRAIN Page 2 of 5 The field of medicine is constantly evolving with increase of efficient tools and the speed of technological advancement. Neuroscience attempts to comprehend the complex function of the human brain. The human brain controls every thought, feeling and action, while simultane- ously regulating basic physiological tasks, such as respiratory and heart rate. While neuroscien- tists have made recent discoveries into the functions of different regions of the brain, the brain, itself, continues to be a mystery. Marr (2010) claimed that; Understanding a brain process requires efforts at three levels. First, the functional properties of the process must be defined and behaviorally characterized. Next, the computational algorithm that performs that process must be identified. And finally, how neurons and their network connections lead to the execution of that algorithm must be determined. The human brain has a well established ability to adapt, recall and respond. The brain is constantly evolving, through learned and environmental stimulus. Through the dedicated field of neuro-imaging, a neonatal, adolescent and adult brain scan can significantly differ. This corrobo- rates the theory that the brain is progressing and maturing in age. According to OECD (2007), “Studies have shown that learning can be an effective way to counteract the reduced functioning of the brain: the more there are opportunities for older and elderly people to continue learning,
