A popular urban legend states that humans only use 10% of their brain, and that if we used the rest we could perhaps do extraordinary math calculations or have telekinetic powers. Scientific evidence shows every brain region has a function and over a day you use 100% of the brain. The myth might come from the fact that at a given moment (e.g. at rest or just thinking) we may be using only 10% of our brains, in order to minimize energy consumption. After all, the brain represents 3% of the body's weight and uses 20% of the body's energy.
I'm not so sure. I could name a couple of people who are definitely using less than 100%.
It pained me to see that the movie "Lucy" based its entire plot on this misconception.
I think this is very interesting, because I know the movie "Lucy" made a lot of people question how they could use more of their brain.
Can't use more. You can just use what you've got better.
