Those brain cells are pretty incredible, too. They shoot messages around so efficiently. Brain signals can reach speeds of 267mph (430 km/h)! And if you ever got the urge (and the equipment) to measure your brain action while you’re sleeping, you’d find that it’s just as active at night as it is during the day.
That’s because it’s busy pumping your heart, digesting your food, maintaining your blood pressure, and much more – all so you can wake up alive and kicking.
Consider this though: in a single day, 70,000 thoughts can pass through your brain. Some of these may be the same thoughts looping around over and over. Others will be new.
