Who Said Human Brain Just 10 Percent in Use?

brain-of-humanBaltimore, The human brain is very complex and is the source of all feelings, behaviors, experiences, and the warehouse of memory and consciousness. But is it true that humans only use 10 percent of his brain?

The brain is very mysterious, and an additional one other mystery is the assumption that humans only use 10 percent of his brain. And if everyone could use another 90 percent of the brain, maybe everyone can be a scientist and has the power telecinetic.

“Though an interesting idea,” 10 percent myth “is absolutely untrue, and very amusing,” said Barry Gordon, a neurologist at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine in Baltimore, as reported from Scientific of American.

According to Gordon, a myth derived from the concepts of people about his own brain. This group saw itself as a lack of evidence that gray matter (cortex of the brain that contains nerve cell bodies) is not maximally utilized.

This is a false assumption. It may be true, at certain moments in one's life, such as when to rest and relax only use only 10 percent of the brain. But this does not apply to other conditions.

“It turned out that we use almost every part of the brain, and most of the brain is active almost all the time. The brain represents three percent of body weight, and require 20 percent of the energy body,” added Gordon.

The average weight of the human brain about three pounds (1.3 kg) and consists of the cerebrum, cerebellum and brain stem.

Some diseases in the rainy season include dizziness, flu, dengue fever, diarrhea, vomiting, dysentery, intestinal worms. When body is wet, damp clothes that make a home causing mold and fungus on the skin like the groin, between toes, breast fold.

Presumably sprinted through the rain to run only safer than walking alone because the body will be more wet. Overview assuming it is true, because by running the rain will be much briefer. But running will make the blows that rain water does not only come from above, but also from the front so it is quite reasonable to run when the rain just makes it more moist.

Excerpted from the Gazette,  two scientists from North Carolina, Thomas Peterson and Trevor Wallis never do experiments about it. They do it in the Appalachian mountain region during rainstorms in the summer of 1996.
In the rain, Wallis ran as far as 100 yards in their office parking lot while Peterson was just walking. Both are wearing hats and clothing made from the same, such as cotton.

Once through the pouring rain, their clothes immediately weighed. Peterson turned out clothes for 40 percent more weight than wet by rain water that ran Wallis clothes quickly.
