Apocalypse Hal - Brain bits

You can't discuss zombies without discussing brains, particularly the eating thereof. 

However in this case we can going to have a peek at our own brains, because you will want to use this 1.5 kg lump of jelly like material to keep you alive.

Now I must confess, I am not a neurosurgeon, which is probably a good thing seeing I am clumsy with power tools. So I may not have pinpointed all the bits correctly but hopefully you are not using this as medical advice. The brain is extremely complex and Latin is a tricky language.

Anyway, key thing is most of the input from your sense organs goes through your limbic system (emotions) before it gets to you cerebral cortex (where you think). This is partly why emotions can overwhelm you before you realise what is happening. Also why decision making is so closely linked to emotions. 

Bite off more brains than you can chew
