TBT: The 10% Myth

 

✖️  Through misinterpretation and media, many people have come to believe that we only use a portion of our brain. 

✖️  100% of the brain is always active, even while you sleep, but at a different states of activity.

✖️ Research also reveals that when any section of the brain is removed, there are functional deficits.  

 

The brain is always active and very powerful in terms of its connectivity and processing capability.
