The brain is one of the most complex organs in the human body. There are as many neurons in our brain as there are stars in the sky; that’s almost 100 billion. It functions like the command center, controlling the central nervous system, keeping us walking, talking and going about our day. The complex functioning of the brain has spawned many studies over the years. Studies that provided insight some just leading to unfounded facts.

It is believed that a person is either left or right brained depending on their analytic or artistic aptitude, myth or fact? Is it true that we use only 10-percent of our brain?  While you mull over these, watch this quick video by Buzzfeed that’ll help you tell the myth from the facts.

Oh and before I forget, go ahead & have that drink. Alcohol doesn’t kill brain cells, after all!
