Brain. Abstract computer artwork showing the human brain connected by a network of lines. The front of the brain is at right. The brain is the nerve centre that controls bodily function and thought. It interprets nerve signals received from the rest of the body and initiates the appropriate responses. The convoluted surface of the cerebral cortex, responsible for intelligent thought, language, conscious movement and memory, is seen here. The cerebellum (lower left) controls muscular co-ordination, balance and posture. The brainstem (lower centre) sub-consciously controls the body's vital functions, including breathing and blood pressure.
