    Have you ever wondered why we only use a portion of our brains potential?

    Well I for one have. The human brain is an intricate network of pathways and channels, these pathways and channels lead to our memory, where we store our thoughts.

    So what is our memory usage?

    No body knows to be exact. Experts in the field seem to differ quite markedly.

    What are your thoughts?

    It varies from person to person. It is a popular belief that Einsten used only 2% of his brain!

    Given the weird way with which more people behave, I wonder whether these people use their brain at all :p

    I'd like to know how they "know" or "measure" how much we use. For all the "experts" know, we may use all of our brains! Experts just can't detect it yet!

    I read numbers from 2% to 11%.

    Anyway while the number is probably correct, it's not a complete answer. We use different parts of our brain at different times. We don't just use a small portion. We just use a small portion at one time:

    - Have you ever wondered why we only use a portion of our brains potential?

    - Is the brain aware of every cell in the body as well as each cells inner functions - the physiology alone for a single individual would preclude the notion the brain does not function at its fullest capacity. What is asked is how much of it is controlled by the being and the answer to that in most cases is minute and grows weaker per year per person per offspring per modern mans dissemination to minimal existence.

    Many experts examine our brains using heat. This is important because it shows up the parts of the brain that we use or are using for different functions.

    Wow the poll is starting to suggest we only use 10 - 20% of our minds. So what do we do with the rest?
