Interesting article about the brain

http://www.brainconnection.com/topics/?main=fa/brain-myth

Do we really use only a small portion of our brain? If the answer to this question is yes, then knowing how to access the "unused" part of our brain should unleash untapped mental powers and allow us perform at top efficiency. Let's examine the issue and attempt to get at the truth behind the myth.

From page 3
Clinical evidence indicates that damage to even a small area of the brain, such as that caused by a stroke, may have devastating effects.

from page 4
From an evolutionary perspective, it is unlikely that a brain that is 90% useless would develop. The brain is an expensive organ to maintain and utilizes a large supply of the body's energy resources.

fwiw
