Rice Cooker: brown rice button

Hi everyone! I just bought a rice cooker, it's this model from Target, and it has a few neat features including a White Rice button and a Brown Rice button. I guess my question is, what's with the brown rice button? It confounds me. Rice cooker devotees, please enlighten me!

Also, what's your favorite thing to cook in the rice cooker other than rice, if you have one?

Thanks and happy new year!
Ben
