For verbal communication, we have two centres in the brain. The Wernicke centre is doing Language comprehension and the Brocas centre helps to express the language in the form of speech. When we read a sentence, the Wernicke centre conceives its idea and sends the information to the adjacent Brocas centre, which then helps to express the information in the form of speech.

If we use code words frequently, that may affect our language expression. If a child uses the code UR for sending messages frequently, he may pronounce YOUR as UoooR and sometimes he may write like this in examination. Experts say that heavy use of Codes and Slangs in internet and mobile phone may create problems in children to grasp the basic grammatical concepts and reduce their thinking and speaking ability. This also reduces the meaning of English and drops their ability to speak more phonetic.

Why we are so Happy or Sad? Fact File 7

We have both Pleasure centre and Pain centre in the brain. When there is over stress, the pleasure centre will be inoperative so that the normal enjoyable moments will not give any pleasure. Into our brain, millions of messages are passing  daily, of which some are happy messages and others, are sad messages. Brains cells communicate each other through the chemical messengers produced by them to make the body prepared to cope up with the situations. If the messages are happy, then the Endorphin system responsible for the happy mood will be elicited. The sad messages are also carried by the brain messengers which causes mood alteration and  loss feeling. Most nerve centers in the brain are capable of receiving both happy and sad messengers and as long as their input is balanced, everything runs normally.If a person is capable of using these happy messengers wisely, he feels that stress is challenging, fun and enjoyable.Don’t be anxious about the future, and don’t be too much ambitious .

Is human being communicate through Odour? Fact File 5

Absolutely No. The chemicals called Pheromones in the sweat do not have to be consciously perceived to affect the recipient, but have been shown to affect our behavior when used at subconscious levels. Humans, like other animals also release pheromones from the body, but its quantity is less significant since it has no relevance in communication. In the course of evolution, humans have lost the ability to detect and respond to pheromone consciously. But researchers say that perception to pheromones is still in our brain but at the subconscious level. At an instinctive level, the pheromones dictate our interaction with other humans. Researchers say that the Andropenes significantly influence the Aggressive behaviour, Sociability, masculinity, affection etc of males. Likewise the Copulins of females can influence the brain of males to alter the behaviour. But We human beings are highly hygienic, so that our pheromones are the victims of daily bath.

How Cell phone changes our Life? – Fact File 4

Cellphone is not a play device. It is the strongest of all electronic devices using radio waves. Unlike other wireless devices, Cell phone uses frequency in the Gigahertz range close to the Microwave band. Why it uses this frequency? Cellphone requires strongest signals free from interferences to make continuous link with the far located tower (normally 2 km radius) and the satellite. Just observe the range indicator. It is always moving which indicates the effort to make the link. If it is not getting the link, automatically it will jump to another tower. During this effort, very high bursts of radiating energy will spread around us. This kind of high energy radiation is not seen in any domestic appliances. The problem is severe since the Cellphone is always close to the body.
