What is the other 90 percent of your brain used for?

The widely popular belief that we use only 10% of the brain power isconsidered a myth by most neuroscientist.

That is highly likely. When you lose (or have never had) one of your senses, the others increase their sensitivity to compensate. That is both because you rely on the other senses more, and because less of the brain is dedicated to the missing senses. So the brain connections are different when compared to people with all their senses, allowing more of the brain to be used for what is left.
