Our brain through a complex one is an important organ of the human system. Dietician Sheela Seharawat believes that our brain is just like an instrument, an instrument of the mind and our body is just a mere servant of the mind. In her Diet Clinic while counseling people she says that it controls almost every aspect of our day to day functionality – from the basic ones like breathing to more complex ones like communication. At the same time, the structure of the brain is as such that it is very delicate and the minutes of injury to it can make a person have long-lasting physical as well as mental impacts.
There are many health issues related to the brain’s function. At the same time, just like our body needs good nutrition, our brain needs too. It plays a very crucial role in the good development and health of our brain.
Every year various events are organized during the Brain Awareness Week around the world in order to celebrate the brain. Exhibition of the brain, lectures, social media campaigns, displays, workshop, and many other events are held at various places to showcase the importance of the human brain and create awareness on its research and development. This is also taken as an opportunity to let people be aware on the progress that is taking place in the research of the brain in diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of its disorders like Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, Stroke, Depression and Schizophrenia. Students, neuroscientists, and enthusiasts from various places actively participate in the various events that have been organized. These events are a great opportunity for those who have a keen interest in neuroscience, biology, cell physiology and pharmacology, genetics, medicine, health science, and psychology.
