5 Responses to Neuroscience facts to blow your mind [infographic]

  1. So the brain is both 70% water and 60% fat? That is fascinating! (and obviously wrong). Amount of neurons is more like 85 billion. You can’t tickle yourself because the brain predicts your touch (even more fascinating than mere recognition). And recognition of some facial cues (mailny fear) is supported by the amygdala but the superior temporal sulcus plays a vital role in more subtle cues. But cerebrum is spelt correctly.

  2. The brain does not fully stop growing ever, but officially the accepted age discussed in psychology and neuroscience courses these days is closer to age 26.
