5 Things The Human Brain Can Do That We Totally Cannot Control

The human brain is one of the most extraordinary organs in the body. The scientific community believes that the human mind is capable of producing enough electricity to power a light bulb.


In addition, research indicates that the brain is capable of functioning in an exaFLOP manner, which indicates that the brain is capable of doing a scale of one billion billion calculations every single second.


The results of these kinds of calculations lead scientists to believe that the human brain has the potential to store one petabyte of information. In this post, we are going to take a look at some of the things the human brain is capable of doing, some of which you are probably not even aware of. Examine the five items that are listed below:


1. Fabrication of evidence


Did you know that your brain is capable of creating memories even if they did not previously take place? I have no doubt that you have been to some locations where you have had the sensation that the events are taking place all over again. The brain suggests that memories are more than just recollections of things that have happened in the past. There is no memory that is absolutely flawless.


Memory specialist Elizabeth Loftus conducted a study and experiment in 1995, and she discovered that one quarter of the people who took part in the study believed that they had at least one fabricated memory of some kind. According to scientific research, the human brain is capable of adding new knowledge in an effort to either replace old information that is no longer relevant or fill in information that is missing. This takes place in a way that is quite consistent with itself, despite the fact that the information is not totally accurate.


2. Proprioception


When it comes to having an accurate perception of the external environment and being able to react appropriately to any given circumstance, proprioception is of the utmost importance. In order for this to take place, the sensory receptors that are located in the joints and muscles of the skin need to be actively engaged.


When you desire to adopt a specific posture while sitting or standing, the subconscious part of the brain is generally the part of the brain that is working. Because of this, we are able to carry out such activities in a very simple and straightforward manner, without the need to even think about or process the information. I suppose that's just a quirk of the human brain.


3. Passing judgment on people we have no personal connection to


Have you ever met someone who, despite the fact that you don't know them, your brain immediately has an intense need to learn more about them? The brain will make an educated guess as to the true identity of the person. People refer to this as their intuition, and it frequently appears as though we have no control over these kinds of feelings. It is a process that takes place in the region of the brain known as the subconscious, and it always seems as though we do not have control.


4. Recognizing when other people are being dishonest with us


Have you ever been lied to by someone, and before they even finished speaking, you had the firm conviction that nothing they said was true? There are situations in which a person's body language can tip you off to the fact that they are lying, but there are other situations in which you can get the distinct impression that a person is lying even though there is nothing about their appearance that suggests this.


Experiments conducted by scientists have shown that the human brain has the capacity to intuitively recognize a lie even when there are no outward signs of deception. The subconscious region of the brain is where this process takes place. Am sure you have heard people say things like, "I have a horrible feeling about such and so," and in the majority of cases, it typically turns out to be true when they say something like that. This is a mental capacity that hardly a single person seemed to even comprehend.


5. Having a vision of the future


One of the capabilities that the brain possesses is the capacity to foresee the future. Even though the brain is contained within the skull and has no contact with the outside world, scientific research suggests that it is still able to pick up signals from its surroundings and use those signals to help us have a better understanding of our surroundings. This is despite the fact that the brain is enclosed within the skull and has no contact with the outside world.


What the brain does basically is it uses the knowledge and experiences it has had in the past to make predictions about what will happen in the future. Even people who work in the stock market have demonstrated the ability to forecast the future of the stock market by merely evaluating the patterns that emerge from the most recent information. The cerebellum and the ganglia are the areas of the brain that are accountable for making these kinds of forecasts.
