How long does the human brain work?
Since ancient times people are trying to learnthe true potential of your brain, but in the course of history, these searches have often led to many misconceptions. Scientists have repeatedly tried to assess how much the human brain works, and as a result of their research, in the last century, there arose a lot of false theories. According to one of them, it was believed that a person uses only 1% of his potential, while others claimed that 15 to 20 percent.
And yet modern science was able to come to a commonThe decision about how many percent of the brain a person uses. Thanks to recent research conducted by Peter Penny at the Center for Newell Sciences of New York, it was proved that only 3% of neurons can be permanently involved, without negative consequences for humans. But this figure is unstable. The extent to which the human brain works, largely depends on the environment. If a critical situation arises, the number of involved neurons increases in some people to 50, or even 60, percent.
A strong increase in brain activity is negativeaffects the neurons, and because of such "wags" our brain takes a long time to restore them. Neurons are the main retransmitters of information in the human body. Through dendrites resembling branches of trees, they receive input signals and then are transmitted further along axons - processes, similar to long cables. Presumably, in the human body there are about 200 billion neurons, each of which contains up to 10,000 dendrites.
But all the same, despite the achievements of mankind in science, we still can not with full confidence speak about all the possibilities of the human body.
