WATCH: Get An Up-Close Look At A Real Human Brain

We've all seen a cartoon brain in science textbooks, but an actual brain, from a once-living human being's head -- that you don't see everyday.

HuffPost Live was granted such an opportunity on Tuesday when neuroscientist Wendy Suzuki, author of Healthy Brain, Happy Life: A Personal Program to Activate Your Brain and Do Everything Better, showed off what she declared to be "the most complex structure known to mankind": a noggin that once belonged to an actual individual.

Watch Suzuki's tour of the human brain in the video above, and click here for the full HuffPost Live conversation about neural health.
