composed of grey and white matter with billions of the interneurons. It releases neurotransmitter
from presynaptic knob as a response to the action potential hence exciting the adjacent synapse.
The memories are stored in complex patterns of neural interaction which results from given
stimulus. The brain has different columns which are involved different or single piece of
information. The columns make up the two hemispheres of the brain whereby each hemisphere
has several lobes of the brain.

different roles which include personality, planning, reasoning, voluntary movements and also
converting mere thoughts to words. On the hand, the temporal lobe determines the frequency and
volume of sound, verbal and visual memory. The parietal lobe deals with both visual and
auditory sensory which is tied to written and spoken language skills. Apart from lobes, the brain
