  • Significant Difference In Brain Functionality
    929 words
    The Human Brain Through the use of molecular biology it is thought that the hominidae family first appeared about 5 million years ago. Based on this time frame it is believed that an African Hominoid lineage was present shortly before that time, approximately 10 myp, which contained the common ancestor to both the chimpanzee and human. The split into proto-chimpanzee and proto-human occurred during the last million years of the Miocene epoch. (Changeux and Chavaillon pg. 61). The fossils, especi...
  • Great Big Brains Of One Million Years

    Kurt Vonnegut's Galapagos was written one million years ahead of the year 1986 AD. In this book, Vonnegut argues that the ultimate effect of humanity's sociological problems with technology is that man's intelligence will be the downfall and destruction of the human race. The essential point made by Vonnegut in this work is that the 'great big brains' of humanity drives people to go further into technology and create new weapons that will lead to the demolition of man kind; Vonnegut disagreed ag...
  • More Reliable The Brain
    1,020 words
    Is the Brain Reliable? The definition of the word "reliable" according to the American Heritage Dictionary is the capability of being relied on and dependable. In my personal opinion, the brain is one of the most reliable pieces of equipment that I have ever encountered. The power of the brain and its capabilities are endless. The human brain possesses both validity and consistency, while at the same time processing thousands of pieces of data a second and relaying the data into select portions ...

It is known that humans by nature become stimulated by certain variables like a loud noise or possibly the sight of a spider. The question to scientists is whether or not emotion and mood is formed through mind processes or biologically innate traits. Scientists are searching the brain for a particular area that stimulates emot...
  • Differences Between Human And Ape Brains

    Homo Aquaticus? I. Introduction When the human brain is compared with the brains of apes there are several obvious differences; the centers for the sense of smell and foot control are larger in apes than in humans, but the centers for hand control, airway control, vocalization, language and thought are larger in humans. In my paper, I will describe the most defined differences of brain size and centers between humans and their closest relatives, chimpanzees, to compare them with other mammals an...
  • Development Of The Brain Engels
    2,063 words
    The latest discovery of a fossil skull in Kenya, more than three million years old, once again demonstrates the complex evolution of humankind. The following article examines the evidence and sees how it fits into the ideas of human origin formulated by Frederick Engels more than 100 years ago. ' There is a grandeur in this view of life, with its several powers, having been originally breathed into a few forms or into one; and that, whilst this planet has gone cycling on according to the fixed l...

  • Brain Transplant Medical Technology
    494 words
    Brain Transplant Medical technology has seemed to advance enough so that doctors are able to perform brain transplants. So far this procedure has only been successfully performed on animals, and now doctors hope to perform this procedure on humans. I believe brain transplants should not be performed at all, and especially not on humans because of the numerous problems and side effects that could arise. Even though brain transplants can be successfully performed on animals, this does not mean tha...
  • Human Level Intelligence

    Eric Finger man By a 'super intelligence' we mean an intellect that is much smarter than the best human brains in practically every field, including scientific creativity, general wisdom and social skills. This definition leaves open how is implemented: it could be a digital computer, an ensemble of networked computers, cultured cortical tissue or what have you.

  • Abilities Of The Human Brain

    The human brain and the computer in the past few decades we have seen how computers are becoming more and more advance, challenging the abilities of the human brain. We have seen computers doing complex assignments like launching a rocket or analysis from outer space. But the human brain is responsible for thought, feelings, creativity, and other qualities that make us humans. So the brain has to be more complex and more complete than any computer. Besides if the brain created the computer, the ...

Any physiological action that receives a positive feedback, such as a handshake, a kiss, or the use of a drug, can cause the level of dopamine activity in the brain to increase. Dopamine is a neurotransmitter that relays messages from one neuron to the next. Through axons, neurons influence neurological activity in many regions, spec...
