Lesson Outline

The brain is responsible for your cognitive abilities, such as: learning and memory, language, visual and spatial skills, executive function, and social skills. It’s also responsible for programming muscle movement and coordination, helping you to understand all of your senses (vision, hearing, smell, taste, and touch) and so much more.
The brain is sensitive to changes in your behaviour. Sleep, diet, exercise habits, lifestyle choices, such as the use of alcohol and smoking, and your level of brain and social activity can all impact how your brain functions now and possibly in the future.
