22 July - World Brain Day
The human attention span is shorter than a goldfish. Research shows that the average attention span has decreased by an average 12 minutes over the last 10 years. Studies have even shown some links between device multi-tasking — for example, if you’re scrolling through social media while watching TV — and declining attention spans.
Your brain is about the size of your fist and weighs on average three pounds. But the organ holds 400 miles of blood vessels, some 100 billion neurons, and around a trillion glial cells (a type of cell thought to protect and support neurons). Like with fingerprints, no two people have the same brain anatomy, a study has shown. This uniqueness is the result of a combination of genetic factors and individual life experiences. Like with fingerprints, no two people have the same brain anatomy, a study by researchers of the University of Zurich has shown.
Brain disease is the leading cause of disability worldwide, contributes the main global burden of disease and is the second leading cause of mortality. The World Federation of Neurology (WFN) has raised its voice to proclaim World Brain Day on July 22 to raise awareness of its potential, risks and diseases.
It is estimated that 13% of the causes of disease worldwide are linked to neurological diseases and mental disorders.
The main diseases affecting the brain are stroke, neurodegenerative diseases - such as Parkinson's or Alzheimer's - epilepsy, migraine and multiple sclerosis. Neuromuscular diseases also cause a high burden of disability.
