Electricity and chemicals in your brain? (3)

Your brain sends and receives thousands of signals from your entire body via you nerves every moment of your life, day and night.

The innate intelligence of your body does the decoding and interpretation of these messages.  For example, your brain gets information from 130,000,000 light receptors in your eye…  100,000 hearing receptors in your ear…3,ooo taste buds in your mouth…  30,000 heat spots, 250,000 cold spots, 500,000 touch spots on your skin.

The first group of cells, in utero, to differentiate into a system are the brain cells.. Your brain is the FIRST organ to appear as your body developed within the womb of your mother.

Do you wonder WHY?

The infinite wisdom of your body, called innate intelligence, conceived, manufactured, assembled, coordinated and distributed over 400 trillion tissue cells, each one with a specific function to perform… in only 280 days!!!

Is it yours of mine? (3)

Receptors in the joints, ligaments, muscles and tendons respond to the stimulation that occurs when we move a joint.  Some monitor the rate of movements and the tension of muscles.  Others, signal our position in space.  Still others measure pressure changes… when you turn the steering wheel, then relax your grip, or when a quarterback reaches for the ball, then takes it… and continually tell the brain what is going on.  These messages travel very fast and produce varying degrees of coordination.

Few of us go through the day giving close attention to what each part of our body is doing and where it is.  Yet we are aware, subliminally, and continually process information from proprioceptors, consciously using it to direct action.  Look around at people you know.  One may be a piano player, another a roller skater, another a champion runner.

Proprioceptors are at work here, as they are in the performance of daily chores like washing dishes and driving the car.

Is it yours or mine?

Can you touch your fingertips to each other behind your back?  Can you close your eyes and find your feet?  Can you walk in a straight line?  You probably can.  The reason the that our bodies possess a sense sometimes called kinesthetic (from the Greek for “perception of motion”), and are served by proprioceptors.  (Proprio comes from Latin “for one’s own”).

 

The information that some of the proprioceptors send to the brain creates some of the most fundamental components of our sense of self.  It is the innate intelligence of your body that does the creating of your sense of self.  Without a sense of self, you could not survive in this world.

Why do we say ouch? (2)

Inside the spinal cord, millions of nerve cell bodies in the grey matter process sensory and motor input and handle automatic reflex actions.  Touch a hot stove, and your hand jerks back instantly because of a spinal cord command.  Conscious reactions occur when the spinal cord relays messages to and from the brain via nerve fibers in the white matter.  You feel pain and know you have burned your fingers because a report was sent to your brain by way of the spinal cord as the spinal cord mediated a reflex action in your muscles.
