    most mysterious. It is the control center of the body and it’s important to understand the complexity of the human brain. Although your brain functions as a whole, it consists of three main parts, The Central Core, the Limbic System, and the Cerebral Cortex. Then those parts break into even smaller parts. The brain is just like the computer, it depends on certain parts to work correctly and get every day jobs and even more complex jobs done. The Central Core The Central Core is the first of the three

    novel acetylcholinesterase inhibitor, has been shown to dramatically improve cognitive performance in rodents and is currently in clinical trials (N. Greig, Brossi, 1996). Studies of rats with forebrain cholinergic abrasions, known to increase Aβ in cerebral areas of the brain, have shown that Phenserine can protect against this and reduce βAPP production in animals (Haroutunian, 1997). Moreover, the absence of inhibitors of acetylcholinesterase displays a wide range of behavioral deficits in Caenorhabditis

    and the autonomic nervous system is the part of the PNS that controls involuntary nerve actions (Parker, 2003, p.5). The brain itself is separated into about five areas: the cerebrum, cerebral cortex, cerebellum, medulla, and areas that control motor skills. The area that controls memory is the cerebral cortex (Function of the brain and its regions, 2006). It is separated into four lobes: the frontal lobe, parietal lobe, temporal lobe, and occipital lobe (Parker, 2003, pp. 30-31). The temporal
