Two-thirds of the population believes a myth that has been propagated for over a century: that we use only 10% of our brains.

Hardly! Our neuron-dense brains have evolved to use the least amount of energy while carrying the most information possible — a feat that requires the entire brain. Richard E. Cytowic debunks this neurological myth (and explains why we aren’t so good at multitasking).
There are some rumors about what percentage of the human brain is being used. Moreover, such films as Lucy are being filmed. Nowadays the slightest misunderstanding can be spread around the world with the introduction of social media.

How did rumors come out that we used 10% of our brains?

For such a perception to become widespread, there must be some research in this area. Of course, there are studies that say we use 10% of our brains, but the history of these studies dates back to the 1890s.
At that time, psychologists at Harvard, William James and Boris Sidis, emptied the pit of the brain and observed a change in behavior and thoughts. According to the results, people used only 10% of their brains.
When Albert Einstein made supportive statements on the subject, the view became popular.

And what percentage of our brain do we really use?

Brain-related data can be obtained without any surgical intervention with developing technology. The MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging), which is heard by almost everyone, can easily show that there are no unused areas in the human brain.
According to another medical data, if we were actually using 10% of our brains, we would have to be vegetative.

Another simple equation actually shows how ridiculous this rumor is. As it is known, approximately 20% of the energy produced in the human body is used to operate the brain. Only 10% of this energy use is said to be too much for an active organ.
Therefore, the idea that we use 10% of our brain is now called a myth. Thus, 100% of the human brain is now registered.
A study on this topic revealed that we used 70% of our brains, even during a very simple movement.
Dr. This fact, confirmed by Muzaffer Kashar, is a big step for humanity to accept the truth about the brains.
Rumors claiming that we use 10% of our brain were interpreted by some people as saying that we will have super powers when we use 100% of the brain. Even today, the majority of society believes in this inconsistent rumor.
