I’m sure everyone has heard of “we only used 10% of our brain,” and it’s rumored that Einstein’s brain has developed 20 percent, 15 percent more than normal. So if the human brain develops to 100%, we will have the power to live forever. But is that really the case? There is no scientific basis for this.
This is based on the American psychologist William James’s “The Energies of Men”, followed by a 1980 article in the journal Science, published by anthropologist and science writer Roger-Lewis, “Do we really need our brain?” that described how British doctor John Lorbor found that patients with a significant reduction in brain capacity because of cerebral edema may have normal or even extraordinary intelligence. A one-sided understanding and a series of reports made the rumor widespread.
As for Einstein’s brain, an autopsy was done on the brain, but it didn’t use 5% or 20%. Anatomians found that his brain was deeper than a normal person’s brain groove back, which was associated with the information transmission. Simply put, a deeper brain groove back would be a little smarter.
After the rumors were pushed down, there was science that showed that the human brain is 100% thoroughly developed. But computer tomography and MRI show that the human brain, whether awake or sleeping, has no dormant area. But if it’s 100% developed, then there are people who have brain nerve damage but still are able to live a normal life, which means that the way the brain works is compensated.
The famous American physiologist, Lahiri, is a supporter of the holistic theory of brain function. He demonstrated this view through a series of experiments, with the brain not having eternal memory centers and many areas of the brain involved in memory characterization. All parts of the cerebral cortex play an equal role in learning.
The compensation of the way the brain works is a reasonable explanation, of course, human research on the human brain is still in progress. So why is the idea that the brain develops only 10% so prevalent? It’s not hard to see how children’s education, health care, and drug businesses are behind these rumors, attracting parents who care about their children’s educational development of their brain potential.
So don’t believe that the brain can be developed how much percentage, we should pay attention to its direction and accuracy when promoting science at the same time.
