Expert Answer:

The human brain is a complex organ that allows us to think, move, feel, see, hear, taste, and smell. It controls our body, receives information, analyzes information, and stores information. The brain consists of gray matter and white matter contained within the skull. Brain cells include neurons and glial cells. The brain produces electrical signals, which, together with chemical reactions, let the parts of the body communicate.

The 3 main parts of the brain are forebrain, midbrain and hindbrain. Forebrain shows olfactory lobes, cerebrum and diencephalon. Cerebrum shows 4 major lobes - occipital, parietal, frontal and temporal. Midbrain connects forebrain with hindbrain. Hindbrain shows cerebellum, pons and medulla oblangata.
