My name is FRONTAL LOBE, and I'm pretty much in charge of all complex thinking, life planning, imaging, decision-making, and problem-solving.
I'm PARIETAL LOBE and I'm here to help you feel things like touch, pain, and pressure. I also step in if you're about to burn the roof of your mouth on a hot slice of pizza. But do you ever listen to me?! Ask the roof of your mouth.
Hey there! I'm OCCIPITAL LOBE and people say that I'm a bit of a visionary mostly because I process light and help you see.

We all want our bodies to be at their best, and we work hard to get the body we want. But what about developing the mental abilities that we want? We tend to neglect our brain. Our brain needs our attention and care BUT that doesn't have to be boring, and we don't have to shy away from the fun. Join us every day for riddles that are challenging, fun, and interesting subjects that accommodate many different thought processes. The answer will be given tomorrow before the new riddle is posted.
What will always be in a minute and twice in a moment, but it will not be present in a thousand years? (Check tomorrow for the answer)
The way your brain works is pretty complex - and fascinating. Every week we will take a closer look.
The brain is mission control to the entire human body – a virtual computer operating from within your skull, commanding every movement, every thought, every memory, and every emotion. Even while you sleep! It’s powerful. It’s bossy. It’s spongy, and it’s the most complex organ of your entire body.
The brain contains billions of teeny-tiny nerve cells called neurons that act like messengers, sending information to and from the brain and the rest of your body. It is divided into two hemispheres, or sides. It is much more complicated, but for the most part, each side works to control one half the body. The right side of the brain controls the left side of the body, and the left side of the brain controls the right side of the body. Sit back and enjoy the tour of the brain.
"Always end the day with a positive thought. No matter how hard things were, tomorrow is a fresh opportunity to make it better"
