Bekenstein bound: One megabyte per hydrogen atom.

Even if you can only store one byte per hundred atoms, this still gives you around one million billion megabytes per gram. I wouldn't expect that the human brain holds more than a thousand billion megabytes of data, and a mere billion megabytes is more likely.

There's plenty of room at the bottom.
