7 Interesting Facts about the Brain We all have a brain right, but I bet you don’t know some of these interesting facts about the brain. 1.The brain of an average human adult weighs about 1.3Kg and is made up of 75% water. It contains over 100 billion nerve cells or neurons. 2. According to some of the best neurologist in Ahmedabad, brain size doesn’t matter, as there’s no scientific evidence that a larger brain is better than a small one. 3. The brain doesn’t reach full maturity until about age 25. Little wonder teenagers act like, well, teenagers.

7 Interesting Facts about the Brain 4. The harder you think, the more oxygen your blood carries to the brain. Sometimes even up to 50% of your blood. 5. The human brain can generate as much as 23 watts of power when you are awake. This is enough to power a low-wattage LED light. 6. The brain can only survive for 5-6 minutes without oxygen, after which some brain cells start dying.

7 Interesting Facts about the Brain 7. Men’s brains are bigger than that of women. However, the hippocampus, the part of the brain that is strongly linked with memory, is typically bigger in women. But I am sure you probably knew that last part. Sometimes though, due to old age or sickness and other conditions, the brain doesn’t function as well as it should and then you have to see a neurologist, (that’s a special doctor for treating brain conditions). But you can find the best neurologist near me by using our inbuilt search tool.
