There are many false beliefs about the brain. One of these is the perception that we use only 10 percent of our brain. The brain is still a mystery and this mystery seems to keep its secrets for a long time.
Do we really only extract our mental potential by ten percent? With the help of this myth, the brain can easily be put to the test: functional brain scans prove that there is no “sleeping” brain area. Even individual nerve cells do not rest in healthy people.
Neurologists can use MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) to see which parts of the brain are working when a person is thinking or doing something.
