Wow, never thought of neurotransmitters as electricity in the brain before, but that's a really cool concept. There are also foods that are high in neurotransmitter stimulation aren't there? Like if you eat chicken with walnuts and cranberries, that's brain food isn't it?

There are a number of brain foods, but actually consuming them each day is hard. I take an organic, natural supplement ( every day so that I know I'm not missing out on anything essential.

Uh, these molecules are made of neurons? Excuse me, Professor Science, but that doesn't sound quite right. Are there really any molecules made of neurons?

what happens to the electric energy of the brain during the death process?

It is an amazing fact to learn, about how the brain works with electricity. It is not so surprising as creatures such as the eel also have some electricity in their bodies. Even though this electricity may not be as the electricity obtained through sources like the wind, coal, or water, it is able to make the brain function with tremendous speed. The speed at which the natural body responds to reflex actions may be able to explain how this electricity in the brain works in the body. The brain is an amazing wonder of nature with its ability to perform several tasks at the same time and sometimes have results faster than some man-made machines which work with electricity.
