    If we have 14 billion brains cells and only use a fraction what happen to the remainder?

    If you only use about 2 percent, what happen to the remainder and why don't we use more of our powerful resource?

    That is a good question it would be really cool if we could rebuild them.

    It's an old wives tale that we don't use but a small fraction of our brain.  While there are probably a handful of cells that seldom if ever get used it is only a very small percentage.

    We can't, of course, claim that we use it all at all times; the brain rests sometimes, too.  In addition parts of the brain do different things and if current activities don't require the use of those sections they may be temporarily inactive.

    The bottom line is that we basically use all of our brain, not 20% of it.

    Another question that I feel qualified to answer. platinumOwl4 asks, "If we have 14 billion brain cells and only use a fraction what happen to the remainder"? In my infinite wisdom, I think I have the answers.
