Our Complex Brain

schmid69May 9, 2008

Our brain is the most complex organ of the body. Within the brain and spinal cord there are ten thousand distinct varieties of neurons, trillions of supportive cells, a few more trillion synaptic connections, a hundred known chemical regulating agents, millions of minuscule blood vessels, axons ranging from a few microns to well over a foot and a half in length, and untold mysteries of all these components working together.

The UT Dallas institute of Brain Health is one institute which is dedicated towards understanding and finding cure for the diseases of brain. Its mission is to understand the brainâÂÂs ability to restore or protect healthy brain function, protecting the brain from unnecessary mental decline, healing the brain through treatments that regenerate brain function. The instituteâÂÂs board of directors is further divided into the Leadership Board and the Advisory Board. The Leadership Council includes known names like Sallie and Frederic Asche, Jr.Claudia and Dennis Berman, Toni and Norman Brinker, Dianne Cash, Theresa and David Disiere, Patsy Donors, John Harbin, Matrice Ellis-Kirk, among others as its members.

Center for BrainHealth, part of The University of Texas at Dallas School of Behavioral and Brain Sciences, is a scientific institute that combines cutting edge brain research with clinical interventions. It promotes research, treatment, academic training and is one of the few facilities in the United States providing a continued follow-up aimed at enhancing and monitoring functional recovery in brain injury, brain disease and complications of normal aging. The institute has pioneered a unique horizontal approach to uncover commonalities in brain repair

Thanks for letting us know about this and the some Universities are really into researching for our complex brain which helps us know which charities are worth contributing to. After my car accident last year, I learned how complicated our brain and spine are and our pain receptors.
