Fact of the Day: Brain Power

An urban legend claims that we only use ten percent of our brains. This is untrue, you use mostly all of your brain function especially as different parts of the brain serve different roles.

  1. So many believe that to be true, as even shows have used the whole 10% thing

  2. I have heard that. SInce my mother's brain radiation I have seen certain parts of her brain slow down or quit working- one is short term memory, one is motor skills,like grasping and walking, and one is speech. The radiologish claims no such thing..but she was fine before (except for the lung cancer) and she isn't fine now. So I do beleive there are probably many parts of the brain not being used. Critical thinking skills is one area I can think of right off hand.

  4. That figures. It's crazy how if one small part gets injured it can really mess up a lot.

  5. Would you please contact my wife and tell her I use more of my brain than she thinks I use.
