Your brain is brilliant. It helps makes sure we can walk, talk and do all the other crazy stuff we like doing…such as purchasing wish lanterns and then releasing them in a beautiful display. So this week, dear, faithful readers, we’re looking at all the bits of your noggin that are worked and exercised when you get your mits on our wish lanterns, and which parts are in control throughout the process of lighting and showing them off to everyone:
The Medulla Oblongata: The trusty Medulla Oblongata helps control autonomic functions, such as breathing and digestion. So, when you’re gasping at the beauty of a release of wish lanterns, this bad boy will keep your regular breathing pattern going automatically…useful, we’re sure you’ll agree.
The Cerebellum: In charge of co-ordinating movement, posture and balance. An example of signal sent by the Cerebellum might be, “Open packaging of wish lanterns. With both hands. Unfold lanterns- again, with both hands. Light fuel cell. Keep fingers away from flame”.
The Occipital Lobe: This may be the most important part of the brain for you to get the best wish lanterns experience, because it controls visual sensation and processing. Particularly great, as wish lanterns don’t sing to you as they float away (this may be something that someone out there may be interested in developing in the future…).
If you’re a real brain-iac (hoho) and have more facts you’d like to share with us, or indeed would like to get your hands on some wish lanterns, please do get in touch and one of our team will happily help.
