The brain is the most important organ in the body
. Protected inside the skull
, it is the command center of the nervous system. It therefore has control over all organs of the body, motor and cognitive
function, and hormone
production. It is composed of brain cells
, called neurons
, which receive and transmit information. The brain consists of six lobes divided into two hemispheres. The brain consumes glucose in order to function.
