It’s STEM Tuesday. The brain is an amazing thing.   Water, neurons, and fat. About 60% fat.  There are about 100,000 miles of blood vessels in the brain and no pain receptors.  Light never reaches the brain, yet we perceive light and dark. We think, we learn, we emote, we remember, all because of that three-pound organ.

I saw this Ted Talk a couple of years ago. It’ll take you about 20 minutes.  Hang in there for the first 8:08 minutes. I think Sugata Mitra and his studies will blow you away.
