Here are some Amazing facts about the Human Brain. Lack of oxygen in the brain for 5 to 10 minutes results in permanent brain damage. Your brain keeps developing until your late 40s.

  • New Human Brain Connections Are Created Every Time to Form a Memory.
  • There’s a virus that attacks human DNA making people less intelligent, impairing brain activity, learning, and memory.
  • Your Human brain uses 20% of the total oxygen and blood in your body.
  • When awake, the human brain produces enough electricity to power a small light bulb.
  • Violent homes have the same effect on children’s brains as combat on soldiers.
  • It’s scientifically proven that even a small dose of POWER changes how a person’s brain operates and diminishes empathy.
  • You have Taste receptors in the stomach, intestines, pancreas, lungs, anus, testicles and the brain.
  • The pathologist who made Einstein body’s autopsy style his brain and kept it in a jar for 20 years.
  • 60% of your brain is fat.
  • Dieting could force your Human brain to eat itself
  • The smell of chocolate increases theta brain waves, which triggers relaxation.
  • The Human brain releases so much dopamine during orgasms that a brain scan resembles that of someone on heroin.
  • Forgetting is good for the brain: deleting unnecessary information helps the nervous system retain its plasticity.
  • Alcohol doesn’t make you forget anything. When you get blackout drunk, the brain temporarily loses the ability to create memories.
  • There is no Left Brain/Right Brain Divide. It’s a myth. They work together.
  • Long-term mobile phone use significantly increases the risk of brain tumors.
  • It only takes 6 minutes for brain cells to react to alcohol.
  • When you learn something new, the structure of your brain changes.
  • During pregnancy, a woman’s brain will shrink. It will take up to 6 months to regain its size.
  • When you were born, your brain was about the size it is now. That’s one reason why babies have such large heads relative to their bodies.

  • Unconsciousness will occur after 8-10 seconds after loss of blood supply to the brain.
  • Yawning is the body’s way of cooling down an overheated Human brain. In addition, when your brain does not receive the appropriate amount of oxygen, the yawn is said to provide the remaining amount of oxygen to the brain. Anoxic brain damage is brain injury caused by a lack of oxygen supply. Without oxygen, brain cells will start to die after four to six minutes.
  • Sleeping at night is considered the most ideal time for the Human brain. It appears to enhance the connection between nerve cells in the brain. The brain process is believed to support the basis of memory and learning. In a recent scientific study, it is revealed the brain consolidates all the learned memories from the whole day while sleeping at night. However, one should get enough sleep in order to revive all those memories.
