Welcome to the brain, the command center of the human body. Weighing just three pounds, the brain controls everything from the beating of our hearts to the storage of our memories. The brain’s 86 billion neurons—specialized cells that communicate with each other—link together to form neural circuits. The circuits organize into discrete regions that carry out specific tasks.
