What is the closest comparable of the human brain: Is it a Hard-drive or a Radio?

"The brain has about 1 trillion cells, but 9 out 10 of these are just supporting cells, not neurons. Out of the 100 billion neurons that we do have, at least 8 out of 10 are involved in coordinating movement, vision, hearing, planning. That leaves less than 20 billion neurons for memory – that means there is less memory storage than most laptop computers have on their hard drive (20 Gigs = 20 billion bytes). It is impossible for human memory to fit into the brain. We are more like a radio that “tunes into” memories than like a computer that stores them." - Dr. Paul Dugliss, New World Ayurveda
