    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?

    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.
