Unlike any other creature on Earth, the human brain uses an incredible amount of energy compared to every other organ in the body. Whether we're doing nothing or solving differential calculus, our brains use 20% of the calories we consume, 20% of the oxygen we breathe, and 25% of the blood in our bodies.
