      I’m sure Sonia can tell you more than I can, but the brain is made out of specialized cells called neurons. These cells talk to each other using chemicals and electricity!

      So the brain is made up of tissue called white and gray matter! And inside this matter are 100 billion cells called neurons! The brain is 75% water and is stored in the skull for protection! It is like a pinky/grey colour and soft!!

      The brain is made up of millions of neurones separated into discrete area such as the cerebellum and cerebrum.
