Hit the brakes we're here at the brain. The brain is a small part of your body, but it is a very important part. Your brain is located inside of your head. It weighs 3 lb. (1.4 kg.). There are four parts to a brain. They are the left and right cerebellum and the right and left cerebrum. The cerebrum is the bigger and top part of the brain, the cerebellum is the bottom part of your brain. It looks sort of like spaghetti noodles. The brain sends and receives messages from your whole body. The brain sends the message through nerves for your body to move but your muscles are the actual thing that physically makes your body move. Each part of your brain has a special job to do. There are lots of things to be done through the brain (it's the most powerful computer of all). For example, parts of your brain that control your eyes and ears are what makes you see and hear. The cerebrum controls your ability to learn, create, and to remember. The cerebellum controls balance and coordination. As you can see each part of your brain has a special job. The brain stem helps connect the cerebrum with the spinal cord which is what connects your brain to your body. But the brain stem is more than just a connection. It controls automatic functions of the autonomic nervous system. One more thing about the brain is that if you get a injury in the brain it could cause a lot of damage. Now lets get the engine going and move out.
