Is our brain a supercomputer? Can we make software n installed in it to explore our capacities?

Report as

Some years ago I found the following resource:

The Dana Foundation is a private philanthropic organization that supports brain research through grants, publications, and educational programs.

http://www.dana.org/AboutDana/WhatDanaDoes.aspx

I have been getting a publication from them called "Brain in the News."

After reading these newsletters for a while, I would make 3 tentative responses to your question:

1) Comparing our brains to a supercomputer is severely underestimating its powers.
2) Non-invasive investigative techniques seem to be most useful.
3) Stating that a person only uses a certain percentage of his brain is probably inaccurate.
