Helo, this is from "Seele2". This is my HQ. So contact me here! SuperSciGirl, I have your answer from your question posted! The answer to: "Do all of your body parts connect to your brain, or do some work independently?" The answer is: All of your body parts are connected to your brain. Some muscles move voluntarily, by you, and some work independently, like your heart. You do not concentrate to keep your heart pumping, it pumps automatically. SuperSciGirl, contact me to receive more answers to more of your questions. Here is a fact just for you: Did you know snails have teeth? Yup, they do! Type you later! By, By!

My "HQ" is on the body and brain message board section. If you contact me here, you are more likely guaranteed that you will get a response back than in any of the other subjects. In my messages, if you see "Seele2" , it means the message is from me. Remember that!

Hey, friends! Did you know that a snail has TEETH! Your eyes when you sleep, go through a period of REM sleep. REM sleep, is when your eyes rapidly(R for rapid) and quickly move back and forth! REM stands for rapid, eye, movement. Ever knew that? Ask me a question and I can answer in 1 to 2 weeks.(Due to school.) Chat later y'all!!

I love learning about the human body. There are so many things for us to learn about and still so much that no one knows. I am learning many things as i go through middle school. I enjoy learning about everything, even some of the things that disgust me or make me think "How is that possible?" I enjoy all of the complex things that are going on and learning how everything works. I hope to one day be a science teacher and learn more and teach more students things to get them through life.

You get energy from your food because your stomach digests it and takes it and turns it into energy so be glad you have a stomach!! Also be glad you have bones! Without them you could not do anything! So be glad you have A stomach to digest food with and bones to help you do stuff!

Rachel, GA | (none)
My favorite part of the body is the heart because it works with your brain to keep you alive! We also digest our food in our stomach. LEARNING ABOUT YOUR BODY IS SO COOL!!!!!!

Hey everyone

hannha, NY | (none)
I love learning about my body, it is sooooo cool! did you know that We inherit half our genes from our mother and half from our father. Therefore, every individual is a mix of the properties of his or her parents. We can get our eye color from our mother and our hair color from our father. But how does inheriting a particular gene result in blue eyes or any other physical trait? Genes contain the information that directs the cell machinery to make proteins. The different proteins of the body form the physical features seen by the outside world.

Okay so the way that when you get older you become less flexible is that you loose your cartalage in between your joints. Then is starts to hurt whenever you try to do something flexible.

Grace, | (none)
We are naturally bouent because our body is made up of 80 percent water.

Grace, TX | (none)
There is a part of your brain that is in control of your emotions. That part is most likely when you get happy or sad to send a message to another part of your brain that will send a message to your tear places that will then cause you to cry. I am just gusessing here though so do not rely on me.

Grace, TX | (none)
There are 206 bones in our body. And to answer the next question your bones get weaker and weaker day by day if you don't get enough calcium.

Ashley, TX | (none)
Karissa, it's really simple. Our lungs basically inflate then deflate when we breathe, like a balloon. Then, without really thinking, our brain keeps tabs on our breathing while we do other things. (: Hope this helps. -Ashley

Grace, TX | (none)
If you put a bandaid on a wound and don't let it breathe a while or clean it out it will probably get infected do to the fact that you are letting all the bad germs sit on your wound and or you are robbing your wound from the oxygen that it needs. The oozy clear stuff that is coming out of the wound when you take the bandaid of is called puss and that is bad. So go see a doctor and get some antibiotics to help fight the infection.

Grace, | (none)
The way that we breathe is called respiration. Respiration is there to give oxygen to the blood cells so they can carry it out to other parts of the body. That is why we breathe though so I guess that we breathe by the action of enhaling and how we inhale is by our brain to recieve a message from our blood cells to the spinal cord to tell us that we need to breathe like now.

Grace, | (none)
The way that you get more immune to stuff is to experience them. Like if you got Chicken Pox your body builds up the immunity to not get it again. It has its own little defenses. The same goes if you get mono.

Grace, | (none)
The lungs and the heart, I know that they work kind of as one but how does the heart start pumping? Does the brain send messages to the heart to pump? Or does the heart just has its own energy source? I if so where does it get its sourcec of energy?

Julia, TX | (none)
I think you stay around something for awhile, and after a few times of getting sick or something, you grow immune to it. Like farmers and the swine flu. They were always around pigs, so the swine flu didn't effect them, as h1n1 comes from pigs. ;) hope this helps.

Ramya, NC | (none)
How do you get more immune other than vaccines?

cody, IN | (none)
your brain helps your thinking and movements.

Hey all you people I would like to answer some questions that you have asked.To ally,PA:Your foot can be bigger than the other foot becuase you dont rub it alot,or it could be that you bumped it on something you shouldn't of bumped it on.And always clean your feet in the tub or shower.Now this one is To amber,OH First I'm 1,0000000% sorry about that.Second it takes 39 musles to breath i think i spelled that right.You might of played around somehow and poped a musle that helped you 2 breath.So for you it would take 37 musles to breath cus you proply poped it.So go to the hostpital if it still hurts.Thank you all people that i helped!So i hoped it works out amber in Ohio!ILL POST MORE!and help out or just talk!!!!!:):):(:)

BffsRock009, FL | (none)
annie, NY: the organ next to your hip is called your kidney, i think i spelled it right. Anyway, your kidney, i think, is what cleans your pee. it takes all the junk outta it, and cleans it. if you dont take care of your kidneys, you could get a kidney stone, i think. so drink lots of water, and stay away from sugary drinks when its not mealtime... oh, and use the bathroom regualy. Philip, NY: Yes, i'm afraid so. (Sigh), us big kids will never be able to do gym. andrea, CA: we have about 200 bones in the body. when we're atults (YUK!) we'll have 206 don't ask me how!

So it turns out I'm not moving to California YET. This first one goes to Annie of New York. You have 3 layers of skin. First one is the epidermis, next the dermis, and finally a layer of FAT. Next one goes to Ally of Pennsylvania. It's completely normal to have one foot bigger than another! Actually, I have that same thing! It's just natural. Now, Brandon of Colorado, yes, you're right! At our age we have about 300 bones in our body. But did you know that a newborn baby has about 650 bones in IT'S body? Next one to Aubrey of California. Aubrey, guess what? I'm moving to California, too! We might accidentally bump into each other at some store! Oh, yeah. I got off track, didn't I? Yeah. So there isn't any contagious cancers discovered yet; but keep a keen eye on the news, and see what they've discovered. That's all!

Howdy. Here are THE ANSWERS to all your questions. First, Lily, of MI, the green vein is called the LYMPH VESSEL. It's full of cells that make viruses get out of you before you get sick. It helps you VERY nicely. Now, to Robyn. DNA is made of 4 materials; plus sugars. Yes, the same sugars in your candies. The 4 materials are: guanine, actine, thymine, and another I forgot. So that it is! Now, to Ben of Conneticut. The strongest bone in your body is the femur. It'd be pretty sad if you broke it! Now to Jack, of Kansas. The foot is strong from holding your entire weight, which is a LOT, giving the answer! That's it, Cuke Grower X1! :)
