Then what is in the other 80%??
What would we be able to do if we used all of our brain?
Do we use our whole brain?
what do you think Pit? post your ideas...

I think that we'd just be asking ourselves "What could we do if we only used 20% of our brain's full capacity?"

except we don't. We are constantly using all of our brain, it's just that the conscious mind only "inhabits" a certain amount of it. The other parts are used for bodily functions, perceptual ability, and a whole load more.

No. Just look the functions of our brains and what each section does. It's all explained in elementary psychology

thats what i thought too. i was watching something about a female speedtalker and it was showin usage of the different parts of the brain, so i was quite unsure of whether the 20% was true but ohwell

Funny you should say that. I was watching a documentary about this guy who took these pills that allowed him to use his full brainpower. He became really rich and succesful. You should try find those pills, TS.

Only a small amount of neurons are firing at any one time. However, you use your whole brain throughout your life. It's a myth that you can only use 20% of your brain. The brain is a very useful tool but you need all of it to harness it properly.

From what I know, we can only use approximately 10% (It changes depending on what you are doing) of our brain at one time. However, you use your whole brain throughout your life. It's a myth that you can only use 20% of your brain.


Except when you are, for example, sleeping and your entire brain is active.


VÅDIT nice edit

it's true that certain pills make yourself smarter.

Just sell placebo to gullible idiots, that's smart!

also, we would know better than to make bad threads like this, and IdkWhatImDoing might actually almost know what he's doing.
There's no such thing; there never was. Where I am going you cannot follow me now.

Should be read once at the start of every year of school.


Also, I never got the 20% thing, it's not like you ever hear about someone getting shot in the head and the doctor saying "ah, it's just the 80% he doesn't use, don't worry about it"

Only a small (10-20%, depends on what you're doing) amount of neurons are firing at one time. You do, however, use pretty much every single neuron in your brain at some point; neuronal synapses are constantly being remapped while you learn, take in information, etc.

If they all fired at the same time - acute epilepsy

75% of .20%, 40% of the time = The Pit

Might have better luck asking the Guitar Techniques guys.

Its simple. The machines plant their chips into the other 80 percent and then take over. or at least they would, if they hadnt already.

I know several people I'm pretty sure you would have to shoot in the ass to even come close to disrupting a neuron.

*sigh* we don't actually think 'QUICK, BODY, REGULATE THE TEMPERATURE BEFORE I BOIL', the hypothalamus does it for us. we consciously occupy a relatively small proportion of our mind by thinking and moving, but even something as mundane as playing music is a global process.

I think it's meant to be that we only use 20% of our brain at any one time. We use the whole of it, but just not all at once.

I urinated while humming this morning. That's a lot of brain function at once.

We use more than that.. When you idle you use like 16%, when you tell a story from your past you use about 45%, when you sleep you use 33% (numbers are accurate from a research done by neurologists using an MRI at a university I don't remember right now)..

The remaining % of the brain are used for functions we can't control, aka visuospatial processing, memory storage, balance, etc..

Seriously, we use our whole brain. Our brain is constantly telling our heart to beat, our lungs to breath, interpreting feelings, etc..
