Your brain takes information through your senses and then uses the information to make a picture. Today we tried a cool experiment that showed how the brain uses information from both eyes to create a picture. Then the brain uses other senses to complete the picture and make a decision. Ask us how this works!
Check out this cool experiment to see the decision making process in action. First read the words below. Then read the colors. Notice how hard it is to make your brain switch tasks.
Sensory nerves travel from your senses (fingers, tongue, nose, etc.) and bring information back to the brain. Movement nerves travel from the brain back to the parts of the body to ignite a movement. Reaction time is a great way to see this in action. We used a ruler and a partner to test our reaction time today. You can try this at home with a ruler or a dollar bill.
