What Percentage Of Our Brains Do We Actually Use?

Two thirds of the public and almost half of science teachers believe the same myth: that we only use 10% of our brains. This is not true! The misunderstanding stems from a quote from William James and has somehow transformed into faux-fact that implies 90% of our brains are just idle.
