The brain is the most important organ of the human body. It controls and coordinates virtually every human function

One of the top brain injury doctors in the world described it this way:

The human brain is a miraculous and complex organ. It integrates both internal (bodily) and external (environmental) information that allows individuals to think, to feel, and to be physically and socially active, react and interact with each other as individuals or as groups. The brain governs everything from driving a car and anticipating activities of the day, to feeling happy or sad, and managing relationships with friends, family and employers or business partners. It regulates vital bodily functions such as heart rate, blood pressure, and respiration. Injury to the brain may significantly change the course of an individual’s life, as well as the lives of those close to them.
