Yahoo Health posted an article titled “5 Brain Myths Busted”. One was that we only use a small portion of our brain. In actuality we use a small portion at any one time but over the course of a day we use all of it. It makes sense that our brain is being used and not a mass of wasted neurons. Self awareness is an amazing reality but we are a long way from truly understanding the workings of the brain. Consider that neurons are in a logical network called a neural net that allows thinking. But neurons are cells like any other cell in our bodies that contain genes. These genes are triggered by epigenetic interactions. So we have several layers of programming going on.
