Audrey's curator insight, October 25, 2013 8:32 AM


The brain is hard-wired with connections. It is lined with millions of nerve cells called neurons that can send and receive electrical signals. Whenever a cell receives a signal from another cell, an electrochemical impulse passes between them. The second cell passes the signal on by releasing a chemical known as a neurotransmitter that stimulates the nearest neighboring cell to release its own chemical messenger, and so on. This is how the brain communicates with the rest of the body and controls the various functions.

 

This means that we start learning from we are young
