Memory Storage Capacity of Human Brain

  1. 1. The human brain is the command center for the human neurological system. It receives input from the neurological body parts and sends output to the muscle tissues. Memories and information are stored in the brain via a network of cells called neurons.
  2. 2. :  The human brain structure is almost fully developed by age 11, though some higher self- management brain functions continue to develop into the mid 20’s.  The diameter of an individual brain neuron is 4 microns, meaning 30,000 could fit on the head of a pin.  The human brain has 100 billion neurons, making it the most powerful learning tool in the world.  Each single brain neuron has from 1,000 to 10,000 connections with other neurons, making up to 10 trillion neuron connections possible.  The same part of the brain interprets both your physical and emotional pain.
  3. 3. The brain’s exact storage capacity for memories is difficult to calculate. First, we do not know how to measure the size of a memory. Second, certain memories involve more details and thus take up more space; other memories are forgotten and thus free up space. Additionally, some information is just not worth remembering in the first place.
  4. 4. The memory storage capacity of the human brain is so large because information is most likely stored in connections between the cells.
