Psychic brain, conceptual image. Artwork showing the human brain and head, surrounded in flames, with the pineal gland highlighted (bright dot in centre of forehead). This structure is a small gland deep within the brain. It performs a variety of functions, including the production of the hormone melatonin to regulate sleep patterns. The pineal gland is sometimes called the 'third eye' or the seat of the soul, with psychic and mystical significance attached to it.
