the error bar says

a review by Torrijos-Muelas & colleagues traces the history of popular but misleading claims about the brain & systematically assesses the role of neuromyths in education

39 neuromyths are identified & repeated in their table 2. studies of these neuromyths raise many reasons for their persistence in education & beyond

here at the error bar we use 100% of both sides of our brains & we learn things in many different ways. and you should too. we recommend reading this study


conclusion

so don't repeat them
