This story talks about all the things that your brain does that helps you to stay alive.
- There are lots of behaviors that you have to automatically do to stay alive. (breathing, pumping blood to your body, regulation of body temperature, digestion).
- Your brain gets information about what you need to stay alive and then it tells your body what to do. (eating, drinking, sleeping, going to the bathroom – you learn when and where to do these behaviors)
- These behaviors are so important that your brain rewards you for getting the things it needs – by making you feel happy.
