The Science of Brain Training
Get caught up on Brain Training theory
An area called the "prefrontal cortex" functions as the command centre of the brain. The prefrontal cortex determines how the knowledge stored in your brain is used in any given situation; in other words, "real intelligence", e.g. the good functional use of the stored knowledge and the appropriate handling of a situation, depends on how well you are able to make use of the prefrontal cortex to employ stored information and manage it successfully.
The left and right sides of the human brain are divided into four areas: the frontal lobe, parietal lobe, occipital lobe, and temporal lobe. The "prefrontal cortex" that comprises most of the frontal lobe is unique to humans. It is the source of creativity, memory, communication, and self control, giving it the well-deserved name of "brain within the brain".
