We have been thinking for a long time that the only function of the human heart is to beat and pump blood, but no, the human heart is an independent and complete organ.
Modern science and research, in the light of observations and experiments have recognized that the human heart has a “small brain” consists about 40,000 nerve cells, these nerve cells are the cells that make up the brain.
A Canadian medical Dr. J. Andrew Armour has confirmed this information. According to Dr. Armour, these 40,000 cells in the heart are enough to make the heart a king and sovereign of the human body. Based on research, observations, and evidence, he successfully established a new medical department called Neuro-Cardiology.
Dr. J. Andrew Armour named the nervous system of the heart a small brain in the heart. In an explanatory statement, Dr. J. Andrew Armour also stated that the human heart is an independent organ. Interestingly, when the human brain sends signals to the heart to make the heart beat faster or slower, the heart responds voluntarily. Sometimes the heart’s reaction is exactly the opposite. The small heartbeat is a little higher because it can think in a special way that gives the heart the power to make decisions before the brain in an emergency.
This little brain of the heart is self-supporting and can survive for a specific period of time even without signals or help from the brain. Which is a great proof of sovereignty. The little brain of the heart has the ability of short-term memory. It stores information for a fixed period of time and feels. However, the interaction of the heart and the brain cannot be considered unnecessary because the human body works according to the principles of a specific set of systems called coordination and control.
Seeing the small heart, its twenty-four-hour uninterrupted heartbeat and blood transfusion, then the brain in it, and the ability to think! Make us realize that man is one of nature’s greatest masterpieces.
