It seems like nerve messages travel as fast as lightning to the brain. Has anyone ever measured how fast they travel?

Hmm,
I know I've answered this before but the site search function is borked and I just get the message:
"Fatal error: 'continue' not in the 'loop' or 'switch' context in /home/intelli7/public_html/Sources/SearchAPI-Custom.php on line 112"

Yep, I get that 'Fatal error' message too, and have done for the last 6 months. Duffield has tried his best to get me back in - but with no luck. The fault seems to be irreparable.

Fortunately, Cosmos, our resident brain from down under, gave me a good cheat to hack your way round the fault simply by entering the words intelligentanswers.co.uk germolene in to google but replacing the word germolene with whatever you are searching IA's memory for.

Works a treat. You could maybe try it out on how fast nerve messages travel to the brain?

Somehow any answers to my question recently got bogged down in how the Search function on IA has an irreparable gremlin. Which it has, but that was not my question.

So can I ask it again? Please? I asked...

I was thinking how fast (in mph) do messages travel to the brain? Still an interesting question I think.
