How would explain the function of the brain to your brother or sister?

How would you explain the basic structures and functions of neurons and synapses in the brain to your little brother or sister?
This is a discussion question this week in one of my classes. I am trying to figure out how I would explain this. I was going to use a train station but someone else in class already did that. Anyone out there have any unique ideas on how one would decribe this?

  • Cool thanks. I was thinking of using a flashlight as an example but not sure that would come across right.
