Summary:
Your brain controls everything you do -- from breathing, to feeling, to learning and playing. All About the Brain introduces kids to the human nervous system, which is comprised of the brain, the spinal cord and a vast network of nerves. Discover the basic units of the nervous system, and explore the functions of the three main parts of the brain, including the cerebrum, cerebellum and brain stem. Colorful graphics and exciting, real-life examples help young students understand how messages constantly travel back and forth between the brain and all of the other parts of the body. A fun demonstration shows how the brain is protected not only by the skull, but by a layer of fluid as well. Reflexes are discussed, and an easy-to-replicate experiment is included in which kids actually measure their own reaction time. Part of the multivolume Human Body for Children Video Series in the Schlessinger Science Library. Part of the Schlessinger Science Library for Children Collection. This title is based on the concepts outlined in the National Science Education Standards for Life Science: characteristics of organisms, life cycles of organisms and organisms & environments. A teacher's guide is included and available online.
