Your brain controls everything you do -- from breathing, to feeling, to learning and playing. All About the Brain introduces kids to the human nervous system, which is comprised of the brain, the spinal cord and a vast network of nerves. Discover the basic units of the nervous system, and explore the functions of the three main parts of the brain: the cerebrum, the cerebellum and the brain stem. Colorful graphics and exciting, real-life examples help young students understand how messages constantly travel back and forth between the brain and all of the other parts of the body. A fun demonstration shows how the brain is protected not only by the skull, but by a layer of fluid as well. Reflexes are discussed, and an easy-to-replicate experiment is included in which kids actually measure their own reaction time.
