Debate: Are there any silent parts in the human brain? - NO! by B.O. Popescu, Romania by Mind Map: Debate: Are there any silent parts in  the human brain? - NO!  by B.O. Popescu, Romania

1. common myths and questions

1.1. no complete silence

1.2. sequence of activation

1.3. We only use 10% of our brain, only 10% of our brain potential

1.4. We use 100% of our brain

1.5. is the question well asked?

1.6. Do humans use "more" of their brain than their ancestors

1.7. do primates/mammals/reptiles/birds/etc use only part / all of their brains?

2. How do we connect a brain area with neurological function?

2.1. autopsy in humans

2.2. lesion - based brain-behavioral studies

2.3. experimental models - rats, monkeys

2.4. fMRI - performance of different tasks, but tasks are a limitation (love, writing a poem)

2.5. brain imagery cannot capture functions that happen to quickly or too slowly

3. How do we test neurological deficits?

3.1. neurological clinical exam

3.2. what lesions can be detected by a standard clinical neurological examination?

3.3. silent lesions?

3.3.1. snowdon brain infarction and the clinical expression of AD JAMA 1997
