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

common myths and questions

no complete silence

sequence of activation

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

We use 100% of our brain

is the question well asked?

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

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

How do we connect a brain area with neurological function?

autopsy in humans

lesion - based brain-behavioral studies

experimental models - rats, monkeys

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

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

How do we test neurological deficits?

neurological clinical exam

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

silent lesions?

snowdon brain infarction and the clinical expression of AD JAMA 1997, Link to paper

neurology 2010 jun 15;74, Link to Paper, Intellectual enrichment lessens the effect of brain atrophy on learning and memory in multiple sclerosis

Disruption of the rigth temporoparietal junction with transcranial manetic stimulation reduces the role of beliefs in moral judgments, young et al, Link to Paper

conclusions

behavioral neurology

creativity

feelings

elaborated judgment

etc

many "silent" brain lesions matter when new lesions occur
