(2016). This video provides details of the parts and functions of the brain, how the brain has evolved, and the interrelated nature of the parts of the brain to the whole. Creating a brain map is one of the best ways to build understanding of the separate and interrelated parts of how the brain functions. The way we “imagine” how the brain works best is open to each individual.
