5 Facts about the Human Brain that will Blow Your Mind!

  1. The human brain contains roughly 100 billion neurons.
  2. Most computational neuroscientists tend to estimate human storage capacity somewhere between 10 terabytes and 100 terabytes, though the full spectrum of guesses ranges from 1 terabyte to 2.5 petabytes. (One terabyte is equal to about 1,000 gigabytes or about 1 million megabytes; a petabyte is about 1,000 terabytes.)
  3. One thing is certain: The notion that humans only use 10 percent of their brain is a myth—information may be stored in every part of the brain.
  4. Each neuron seems to have a “clock speed” on the order of kilohertz, which are a million times slower than gigahertz.
  5. The brain is remarkably energy-efficient, running on about 12 watts—the electricity it takes to light some high-efficiency light bulbs.
