- The Problem
Our brains contain a staggering 100 billion neurons, each connected to between 100 and 1000 others. The quality of the networks they form, and the levels of communication between them, is what defines how well we can use this incredibly powerful organ.
Neuroscientists estimate that we are using only 2 – 10% of our potential brain power. That is a lot of latent potential waiting to be unlocked!
The reason why our brains are operating so far below capacity isn’t clear.
It may be that parts of the brain deactivated during stress are not reactivated.
It may also be that when we were younger, we did not have the more developed nervous system required to make this brain connectivity functional. And, it is the combination of a highly connected brain and a well developed nervous system that allows us to achieve peak performance in everything we do.
