Brain-a three-pound organ, which is the whole and the sole reason we wrote this piece of content, and you searched it up to read. Interesting, isn't it!

Anyway, getting back to the definition, yes, it is a three-pound organ that controls our body's functions. It interprets information from around us and governs things such as intelligence, memory, creativity, emotion, etc. Also, it receives information through our five senses: sight, smell, touch, taste and hearing. In short, it does a lot of work!
