Areas of the brain


while the brain is our most complex organ its main objective is simple: to keep us alive and achieve our goals it does this by helping us breathe, eat, walk and talk: the basic essentials to our survival it is geared to search for any dangers in our environment and primes us to respond quickly what’s more, our brain gives us the ability to plan ahead solve problems, experience emotions, store memories, and communicate with others all the things that make us human our brain is the control centre of our entire body, driving our every thought, feeling and action just how do our brains do this? there are three main regions within the brain that serve a specific function as we interact with our environment at the base of our brain is the primitive region in the middle the feeling region and at the front and top of our brain is the thinking region while these three regions have their own special function, they operate as one connected network to keep us alive and reach our goals the primitive region of our brain looks after those basic life functions that just happen automatically like our breathing and heart rate it also helps coordinate our basic physical movements such as our balance, and posture more than this, it plays a key role in scanning our environment to search for those things that may threaten our chances of survival this helps the instinctual part of our brain kick into action automatically the middle, feeling region of our brain plays a significant part in our emotional and social experiences through life this is the part of our brain where emotions and impulses such as anger, fear, and pleasure come from it is activated when our primitive region detects a threat in the environment and triggers our fight or flight response this region drives many of our behaviours and habits and helps us form memories and attach feelings to them particularly when we experience strong feelings, such as fear or happiness lastly, the thinking region is the largest, and most highly developed part of the human brain it stores our memories, allows us to plan, enables us to imagine or analyse a situation find a solution, and communicate with others it is the part of the brain where we can take control of decision making and emotion and override our automatic responses from our primitive and feeling regions our thinking region gives us our likes, dislikes, hopes and ambitions those things that make us uniquely human and different to all other animals on this planet these three regions of the brain work together to coordinate our every thought, feeling, and action
