This myth has circulated for a long time. A surprising number of studies showed brain mapping. We studied the function of various parts of the brain. According to them, there is no area that would never have answered, rather, there are functions not fully studied. Brain scans showed that even during sleep, each part of the brain a little, but active. If 90% of the brain we do not use, so any injury or damage, affecting 90% of these should not affect the rights.
