Six Brain Facts That Will Surprise You

1 Your brain is a 1.3kg universe… wrapped in tissue and bone… it is proportionately larger than in any other creature on earth.

2 Your brain is just 2% of your body weight… yet demands 20% of your blood flow and 20% of your oxygen.

3 The number of physical thought pathways that your brain can potentially create is the number one followed by 10.5 million km of standard font zeros.

4 The one hundred million neurons in your brain can create more ideas than the number of atoms in the known universe.

5 These ideas zip around in your brain at 428km per hour!

6 Your brain’s total capacity for data storage is a terabyte of terabytes (you can look this one up… I did).

Congratulations on learning something about your brain today. The Brain Bulletin is committed to help to do just that.

Remember:

 “You are a genius!”
