Your brain is the organ inside your head that controls your body’s activities and enables you to think and to feel things such as heat and pain.
e.g. Electrodes were used to measure brain activity during sleep.
e.g. Robert had a brain scan to search for possible damage.
Your throat is the back of your mouth and the top part of the tubes that go down into your stomach and your lungs.
e.g. Barbara had a sore throat.
e.g. Paul cleared his throat and started speaking.
Your heart is the organ in your chest that pumps the blood around your body.
e.g. I could feel my heart pounding in my chest.
e.g. The bullet had passed less than an inch from Andrew’s heart.
Arteries are the tubes in your body that carry blood from your heart to the rest of your body.
e.g. Mary suffers from hardening of the arteries. The surgeon will widen her arteries.
e.g. Too much fatty food will make your arteries more likely to clog up.
Your veins are the thin tubes in your body through which your blood flows toward your heart.
e.g. The veins stood out on his temples.
e.g. Patricia uses make-up to hide the thread veins in her cheeks.
