The nature of thought and how the brain operates is a study that scientists have pondered over for many years. The operational process of thinking still has not been definitively proven. Scientists have concluded that the nature of thought and the human species critical thinking ability plays an important function in every human's life and that the human species opinions, judgment, memory, beliefs, observation, personal obstruction, and perceptional thoughts are major suppliers to the nature of the thought process. In this paper the subject to explain will be the thinking process, the sensing process, memory, and medium. Also in this paper the subject to explain will be my thinking process and how it can be influenced by perceptions of true information versus fallacious misleading trickery. Nice job creating a thesis statement that prepares the reader for what is to follow.

Thinking is the lucid investigation and examination into the morality and facts about life, the environment, information, behavior, and experience. Thinking is a process, in which the cerebrum (the largest part of the brain) controls human muscles and body functions, the cerebrum allows the muscles to move when you want to dance, kick a ball, or even talk. When humans are thinking about situations or problems, we are employing the cerebrum to solve the equations. Thinking becomes more explicit as humans age in knowledge and understanding. For example, a young child is inquisitive about death. A pre-school child's way of thinking about death is associated with watching television, seeing cartoon characters capable of being blown-up, and magically appearing whole again. As this age group's growth and development evolve from a pre-school child to a six to 10-year-old, this age group has a propensity to know that cartoon characters are just fictional characters, but all animals, humans, and plant life must eventually die. Still this age group does not view death as personal. As the age group increases, so does the knowledge and comprehension of death. Adolescents and adults process of thinking about death drastically change as they mature and become more intrusive to know more about the purpose of life and death.

The senses process of thinking begin with the forewarning faculties by which stimuli external or within the body become evident. The human body has a perception of awareness through the sense of observation, examination, aroma, and hearing. Each of these senses has a unique characteristic. Of course, for humans to smell an aroma, molecules from whatever the aroma is have to pass by their nose. The same would be true for observation, examination, and hearing. Humans must have a clear path to see what their eyes are observing, they must be able to think to do an examination, and they must listen to hear and distinguish different sounds. All the human senses are linked to the brain, occasionally our brain receives the wrong signals from our senses, such as when we are on medication, restless, or even sick, which most often can deceive the brain.

Memory (2011), according to Memory definition at, is the ability of the

brain to store and recall past sensations, thoughts, experiences, and knowledge. The part of the brain that controls this function is also in the cerebrum.
