AsapSCIENCE Deconstructs a Series of Myths About the Brain

“Seven Myths About The Brain You Thought Were True” is a video by AsapSCIENCE that uses a whiteboard to address popular misconceptions about the organ at the center of our nervous system. Among the myths discussed are the number of brain cells in human bodies, the true impact of drugs and alcohol, and how much brain size actually matters.

While this may be true for some organisms, you only need to look at a sperm whale’s brain — which is nearly six-times that of a human — to see this myth fall apart.
