I cant believe how many people believe that!
hung_big: I thought that it was passed as scientific fact. Why is it then, that we only forget how to do certain things when we have a serious head injury?
we don't. sometimes we don't forget anything. other times we're reduced to vegetables or die. it depends on the nature of the injury and its precise effects on the brain itself (and just as importantly, the rest of the head). the concept that large areas or psychoelectrical potentials in the brain are never used has no basis in fact at all.
I always though that the 10% reference actually was talking about the brains storage capacity.
That even in a life time, your memories take up only 10 percent of the avaible space.
Luckily I've only been reduced to a vegetable.
can you explain how you know this? seriously. last I was aware we were still a loooong way off of understanding how memories are even stored in the first place, let alone where and in what capacity.
I wonder if I'm the only person who actually assumed Pecker's sig quote was a joke...
It was a joke. Duhh . . . While we're here, whoever refers to the whole left brain/right brain dichotomy should let Broca's convolution atrophy a bit.
Using more than 10% of my brain requires effort I don't feel like putting forth.
It's a joke!!! And I'm fairly sure 75 + 15 = 90. maybe. maybe not. that must be information stored in my missing 10%.
Yes, but still, some people to believe the urban legend that we only use like 10% of our brain.
