What precisely does it mean that you use only '10% of your brain'?

I heard somewhere that the brain has enough storage to survive a little more than 10 lifetimes and remember it all, I think my grandfather told me but he might have gotten that from the 10% myth.

uberbatman, thanks for the link.

For some reason, they left out #7:

No site is perfect, I guess.

I found this interesting article ob the impact of culture on brain use. There is so much we do not know.

Excerpt: “A new MIT report suggests people from different cultures use their brains differently to solve the same visual perceptual tasks.

Psychological research has established that American culture, which values the individual, emphasizes the independence of objects from their contexts, while East Asian societies emphasize the collective and the contextual interdependence of objects.

Behavioral studies have shown that these cultural differences can influence memory and even perception. But are they reflected in brain activity patterns?”
