Let's Monkey Around

Test your knowledge about the brain with a few questions -- I'll answer them tomorrow.

What is a neurotransmitter?

Can you have a synapse while you're sleeping?

Can people smell in their dreams?

Does the blood-brain barrier prevent toxins from entering the brain tissue?

On a scale of one to ten, ten being the highest value, how does chocolate rate as an antioxidant?

Doing the crosswords every day will build your brain muscles. True or False.

Does alcohol kill brain cells?

How much sleep does the brain need to function at its best?

How is the female brain different from the male brain?

What part of the eye has its own brain cells?

What other parts of the body have neurons?

Okay, that's enough for a Friday -- have a great weekend!
