The nervous system is a network of nerves. It sends signals into your brain. It helps you make decisions.
The human body has a basic pattern. We have the same parts inside and out.
How does it help the brain make decisions?Are nerves vains?How fast do nerves send signals to your brain?
Our tribe had to write down notes that were in a video in brain pop
One of the difficulties that we faced was writing 3 things we discovered at brain pop. A positive thing that we faced with this challenge is we got through our jobs easier and faster than ususal.
The tremblers work very well together! At first we were behind but then we pulled it together and did very well!

Dr. Avital suggests your wife helping you with daily activities, managing medications, and making financial decisions. Dr. Anthony advises to go to surgery.
