US National Institute on Aging, Alzheimer's Disease Education and Referral Center's PET scan of a normal brainOne of my major pet peeves, as many Grey Matters know, is the portrayal of memory and understanding as opposite ways to learn, instead of simply two approaches that can aid each other.

Today, we turn to another pet peeve of mine, the classic myth about people using only about 10% of their brains!

TED-Ed recently posted a wonderful video, titled What percentage of your brain do you use?, that takes apart the classic 10% myth from many different angles. It's quite an eye opener!

If you're registered at the TED-Ed site, you can delve into the full lesson here.

That's all for now, but I'm glad to finally have a decent reference to which I can refer people about this all-too pervasive myth. Enjoy this food for thought!
