name for grey matter is cinera, and it is made up of neutrons – otherwise known
as cells. In 1920 Agatha Christie invented a Belgian detective named Hercule

the human brain literature there is reference to grey matter and white matter. Grey
matter refers to the cells themselves, while white matter refers to the process of
myelination already mentioned. So, those little grey cells are the 'building blocks'

of us without that advantage must make do with grey cells that are too little or too
few for the mysteries we face. That seems always to have been the case for
humans.

will more readily pay attention to information presented to them if linked to social
processes. For example, the important events in World War II will become more
