It is known that certain areas of the brain are responsible for certain functions of the body. The cerebellum, a structure found in the back of the skull, is known to be important for the control of movement, while the frontal cortex is responsible for cognitive functions such as short-term memory and decision making. However, as researchers continue to unlock the mystery of how billions of neurons in the brain interact, it is becoming more apparent that it is not that black and white.
Dr. Nuo Li, assistant professor of neuroscience and a McNair Scholar at Baylor College of Medicine, and his colleagues have found the first direct evidence that the cerebellum does more than just control muscle activity. It also plays a role in cognitive functions.
“We knew that the frontal cortex and the cerebellum are anatomically connected with each other,” Li said. “We also knew that in humans, cerebellar damage has been known to cause memory or planning problems, so the two might be connected”. (1)
We move in the cosmos.
The cosmos moves around us.
But is there is really anywhere to go? Are you really walking? Is the cosmos indeed moving? Can the eternal universe be explored by moving? Can existence by analyzed by anything not existing?
Why are you walking?
If not to get away from where you are?
Where do you want to be?
If not where you already standing at?
What is there to remember?
If not all those things you have forgotten?
Look at yourself in the mirror.
What is there to see?
