Has Human Brain Reached Its Full Capacity ?

Is our brain currently at its best? Can’t we improve it further? Well, according to some scientists from the Cambridge University, our intelligence is at its best and people can’t get more cleverer.

The team led by Professor Simon Laughlin gave a reason in the support of this claim which states that people are not able to provide their brain with the right amount of energy and oxygen which is required for the proper development of the brain.

Professor Laughlin stated that,“We have demonstrated that brain must consume energy to function and that these requirements are sufficiently demanding to limit our performance and determine design.”

He further added that,”Such energy demands mean there is a limit to the information we can process.”

It was found that the wiring inside the brain needs vast amount of energy for the proper functioning of brain and if that amount of energy is not provided to the brain, the intelligence of a person can’t be increased.

Ed Bullmore, a team member said that,“High integration of brain networks seems to be associated with high IQ. But you also pay a price for intelligence. Becoming smarter means improving connections between different brain areas but this runs into tight limits on energy, along with space for the wiring,”

  1. My husband and i ended up being contented that Chris could conclude his survey with the ideas he had out of the weblog.
