"The amazing movement of billions of brain cells in harmony without any chaos" was termed as the basis of a 'normal' brain. They briefly talked about the basic element of the brain- the neuron, which causes the various emotions, movements, behaviour, personality and it is because of these neurons that we can feel, hear, see, smell and taste.
We were given tips on how to improve our concentration. Changing the place where we study at regular intervals was an easy and effective tip.
