Let’s have a look at some amazing facts about the human brain: 

1. It’s not true that we only use 10% of their brains. Each part of the brain has a purpose.

7. They call it beauty sleep for a reason. This is when your brain files away all your memories during the day.

Was not aware of the Gut Feeling part.

70,000 thoughts a day--how would you go about measuring such a thing? How would you even separate them if you're letting your mind wander for, say, twenty minutes straight in a constant stream?

This all seems pretty hokey to me. Just because laughing uses x parts of your brain doesn't mean laughing takes "effort". Rather the opposite, it seems to me. "Neurons" are nerve cells, not just brain cells, so of course your body is full of them. You have an elaborate neural network in your gut but that has nothing to do with "gut feelings". And I sure can snore and dream at the same time.I have sleep apnea and was shown an EEG/respiration chart where my REM often coincided with snoring. And why shouild storing away memories be called "beauty sleep"?

I hate to be such a prig, but we deserve better from a site that claims to be "psychology with neuroscience."

Why is there no sourcing. Also, how can anyone know with certainty that 12 percent of our dreams are in black and white. If there is something behind that, I'd just like to be pointed in the right direction. I don't enjoy following facts blindly.
