How adrenaline acts on your other organs so you're ⚡️fight-or-flight⚡️ ready!

Are bigger brains necessarily better brains? Sometimes, yes, but not always. It's the quality of the grey matter that counts and, of course, how you use it. For instance, Einstein had an average size brain, but had a humungous area of his parietal lobe, the part of the brain responsible for visual imagery and mathematical thinking. Women have smaller brains than men overall because we tend to be physically smaller. But that doesn't make us dumber, we just use our noodles differently, and, some say, make better use of a smaller space. Also, the additional surface area offered by deeper folds and convolutions on the brains surface can also give the average size brain more thinking power. {via Boing Boing, brain cupcake image courtesy of Me, Myself and Meningioma}
brainFly the neural skies with this awesome brain balloon, created by the International Brain Foundation to bring attention to our wonderful brains and some of the diseases and disorders that cause problems with it. From the website's schedule, it looks like this giant brain won't be floating by you anytime soon, but we still heart it anyway, maybe because our heads are already in the clouds.
