    How many gigabytes do you think your brain holds at this very moment?

    I asked my friends this and they told me unlimited. But I wanted to know how much they thought it held at that moment, not over a lifetime. Thoughts?

    100 GB. Although I really don't know. Taking into consideration how much space things on my computer take up (like documents and pictures), I think 100 GB is close. I am 20.

    It wold have to be many, many terabytes, or whatever comes after that. We only use a small portion of our minds so there is a lot of potential for learning in all of us.

    agree with doodle bugs ... more than terabytes of information.

    Probably at least a hexabyte. Think of all the songs you know, all the people you remember, all the experiences you remember, all the skills you have learned, plus all of your perceptions that become embedded on you brain(taste, touch, smell, sight, hearing). That's a ton of information. I would even say a few hexabytes now that I think about it.

    The term probably does not relate to the storage of information in the brain, since the terms byte, kilobyte, megabyte,gigabyte, terabyte, etc., refer to the manner in which information is stored in electronic digital computers.  The brain stores and processes information through a combination of electrical and chemical processes and is much more dynamic and transformational than an electronic digital computer.
