      Hi @viggy29,

      I’m not sure on this one! I suppose someone must have calculated how man GB the brain can store. Shall I give you some other brain facts instead? The brain has a processing capacity of 0.1 quadrillion instructions per second, and is made up of over 100billion neurons which form 100trillion connections with other cells.
