Is it possible to live without a brain?
If your brain is completely dead, then you cannot live. It is possible to be brain dead and survive with a machine. However it is only possible if the person is connected to oxygen, heart and lung machine at all times.
What organ system contains the brain?
The brain is part of the Nervous system. Its function is to send signals from one cell to another, or from one part of the body to others.
The nervous system consists of two parts: The central nervous system and the peripheral nervous system.
What are the organ’s main functions?
Much of the brain's physiological task involves receiving information from the rest of the body, interpreting that information, and then guiding the body's response to it. Types of input the brain interprets include odors, light, sounds, and pain. The brain also helps perform vital operations such as breathing, maintaining blood pressure, and releasing hormones .
How does your organ work with other systems?
Circulatory System:
All the body functions are regulated by the brain through the nervous system. Without the messages from the brain, the circulatory system does not function.
Respiratory System:
The nervous system and respiratory system depend on each other for proper physiological function. The nervous system acts to regulate and sense needed changes in respiratory rate, while the respiratory system is responsible for providing much-needed feedback regarding gas regulation.
