     The human brain is one of the most complicated scientific arts in the world. Neuroscience technology is seemingly becoming more advanced through robotics, but it some other cases we might becoming “slaves to machines” Professor Vesna. This is because as machines memorization becomes stronger ours can stay the same without noticing the lack of memorization use, because everything seems to be at the touch of our fingertips with the Internet and books. Another interesting aspect to look at with the brain is dreaming, because “95 percent of what we dream is forgotten” (Professor Vesna) and one of the main questions Professor Vesna asks is where does all of this information go.

The unconscious brain is a mystery to many, because what we know about the brain is only a fraction of what’s inside. This also brings me to question what happens to the people’s brains that are in a coma, because the body is asleep but the mind is awake. I always wondered this because of some personal experiences that I have been apart of. My friend’s father has been in a coma for a couple years now; it’s a very sad circumstance that has affected many people, but one of my wonders is where does the mind go during that stage. I guess it would be a parallel circumstance to when we sleep, because the mind ponders with no control.
