Tatum’s Scoop on the brain- 13/2/15

Hi everyone, this is my scoop on the brain.

THE BRAIN

Your skin weighs twice as much as your brain.

About 75% of your brain is made up of water.

Your brain stops growing when you are 18 but it never stops developing until you are in your late 40s

For most people when you smell chocolate it creates brain waves which cause relaxation.

I got my information from Wikipedia

Thanks, Tatum
