    The amount of your brain surely helps. Also, Buddy...change the caption. We use 100% of our brain (duh), but we only use 25% of it at any given time. That whole myth was created when Einstein said precisely what I said, and then people changed it to mean only 25%, and then finally 2-5%.

    Natural selection wouldn`t help the evolution of an organism that didn`t utilize its entire brain.

    "wow amazin,yea must of happened really slowly,but iv`e always thought if computers can get smaller and smaller but store more info why couldn`t our brains do it"

    Because our brains need to be a physical size in order to `attach` all the bits and bobs together.

    The thing that`s not making sense to me is the optic nerve attachment and such.

    Until someone can explain this, I`m not believing it.

    I think this is fake. As everyone has said, you need all of your brain, even though you do not use it all at the same time.

    If it is true, it shows that you do not need a brain to be a civil servant.

    How the hell does he remember anything? The part of the brain - the hippocampus - that is responsible for storing and retrieving memories is located in the middle of the brain. In that side view of his brain, it just looks like his brain is a a hollow shell. In fact, some of the most important functions of a human learning are controlled by the center of the brain.

    He may seem normal and everything, and good for him. But with an IQ of only 75, his wife must`ve had really low standards.... or was a cousin.

    "So, does this mean if he had a whole brain he would be a genius?"

    No it wouldn`t, he would still be the same just with an larger brain. A larger brain doesn`t mean that someone is more intelligent. It`s to do with connections in the brain not volume.

    Anyway, I too was disappointed by the no brain lie and also your "most people don`t use 95% of their brain" lie.

    The whole "we only use 10% of our brain" is total bullsh*t. Ask any neurologist and they`ll tell you that you`re using every inch of your brain. Now, some might have a lower or higher IQ than others, but you`re still using every inch of brain, even when you`re doing nothing but sleeping, your brain is still as active as ever.

    meh, not the size of brain that matters its the connections, and how well those connections are in place... it looks like whats happened is his brain has just been squished into a smaller area, thus all it does is decrease the size of the connections(so he wont be that intelligent) but it doesnt just destroy the connections

    we personally dont use all our brain, einstein was said to use around 5% of it for CONCIOUS thought, the average person uses around 2-5&
    the rest of the brain is used, but only by the subconscious.

    just thought i`d clear that up for everyone.
