    Brain bandwidth

    What is the bandwidth of the human brain? I imagine most would be sight, but you really see a bubble of clarity surrounded by multicolored fog, so that may not be much. Stream of consciousness? Proprioception? Smell? hearing would be like a soundtrack, so that would not be much, right?

    Formerly Frog march.

    Newscaster: ... But I've just had a report that a representative of Disaster Area met with the environmentalists this morning and had them all shot, so now nothing stands in the way of the concert going ahead this afternoon on this beautiful sunny day.

    Can you explain what you meant by "bandwidth"?
    The human brain operates by a massive parallel processing neural net. So comparison to a single-signal telecommunications is probably not the most appropriate terminology.
