Did you know the human body actually has three brains? Neuroscience over the last few years has shown that aside from your head brain (the one we’re all familiar with, the ‘cephalic brain’), we also have a heart-brain (‘cardiac brain’) and a gut-brain (‘enteric brain’).
Each of these brains is a sophisticated system of sensory neurons, motor neurons, neurotransmitters, and ganglia. They are able to receive and process information, store it, and access it again when needed. They can: sense, learn, remember, communicate, and change!
