The human brain cell can hold 5 times as

much information as the Encyclopedia

Britannica, or any other encyclopedia for

that matter. Scientists have yet to settle on a

definitive amount, but the storage capacity

of the brain in electronic terms is thought

to be between 3 or even 1,000 terabytes.

The National Archives of Britain, containing

over 900 years of history, only takes up 70

terabytes, making your brain’s memory

power pretty darn impressive.
