According to Eric Chudler, Director of the Center for Sensorimotor Neural Engineering at the University of Washington, studies by both EEG and PET scans have shown that the brain is constantly occupied in running brain-body systems and in thinking. (The myth "you only use 10 percent of your brain" may have originated in studies of damaged brains during the last half of the 20th century.) Having said that, most people have room for improvement by developing skills through practice—very different from the notion that they use only 10 percent of their brains. (Source)
