Man Finds Out He's Missing Half a Brain After Being Hospitalized with Leg Pain!

The 10 percent of the brain myth is the widely perpetuated urban legend that most or all humans only make use of 10 percent (or some other small percentage) of their brains. It has been misattributed to many people, including Albert Einstein.

This is what exactly happens to a healthy 44-year-old father-of-two, whose identity was not revealed for privacy reasons. He baffled the doctors in France when a medical exam revealed the bizarre brain malfunction in 2007.
