a: Brain stem ~
b: a hidden conductor

What: "Your brain stem is located deep inside the brain surrounded by the neo-cortex and limbic system. The brain stem is like a hidden conductor of the great symphony that makes up the intricate systems of your body. Without any conscious direction from you, it sends out messages to the body, telling your heart how fast to beat, commanding your white blood cells to spring into action, directing your digestive system to go to work. The role of the brain stem is essentially to maintain your state of equilibrium in the face of stress. "
