NAME ORIGIN
    The chimera was a fire-breathing monster with body parts from many different creatures. Common depictions include a lion's head, a goat's body and a serpent's tail. The horrible beast was defeated by Bellerophon with the help of the flying horse Pegasus. The name chimera comes from the Greek word khimaira which means "she-goat". The brain is the part of the central nervous system enclosed in the cranium of humans and other vertebrates, consisting of a soft, convoluted mass of gray and white matter and serving to control and coordinate the mental and physical actions. The word comes from the Old English word brægen.
