NOOB on powerapps - please explain select(parent)

I am studying the properties of a created powerapp from sharepoint list.  Select(Parent) on BrowseScreen1 has me a bit confused.  Navigate(EditScreen1) makes more sense to me and does the same thing.  There is no Parent item on powerapp designer and no reference to "Parent" I can see.  Is there examples and readup on the select command I can see that can shed some light here?

This is often the default OnSelect function for a label in a Gallery. This would make clicking the label, also click the item in the gallery, and make it the SelectedItem of the Gallery.

will study the link - thank you
