Not only is it the fastest organ for healing, it is also the one that provides us with sensory input that guides our movements throughout the day. What our eyes see is processed by the brain and then the brain provides us with the necessary information so that we can make the appropriate movements. Since the eyes are such an important and impressive part of the human body, they are a part that we often take care of. We have them tested regularly and if [More]
The eyes are constantly picking up information from the world around us and transmitting it to the brain. When they do so, the brain is responsible for interpreting any information that is provided and using existing memories to create something that should be a close resemblance to what we are really seeing.
