There could be enough computing ability in just one brain cell to allow humans and animals to feel, a study suggests. In some creatures with
simpler nervous systems, such as flies, a single neuron can play a more significant role. The latest research suggests this may also be true in

Brains are the most amazing things, and this shows that even at the smallest level, the individual cell, they are still incredibly advanced. I believe
the fact that geniuses such as Einstein and Hawking have different brain structures, such as missing or enlarged bits, enables them to access more of
the power the brain offers, but it also makes me wonder what would happen if humans could access the full processing power of the brain?
A greater ratio of glial cells to neurons seems to be a primary reason but why is another question. Recently slivers of Einstein's brain were tested
and was found to have a greater ratio of glial cells to neurons and seems to be that way in the animal kingdom also. I believe that calcium can
travel more quicky through the brain this way.
