Want to analyze your brain?

10/09/2013

Think your field of vision is really in focus, or that your brain is focusing on everything happening in front of you? Think again. Your peripheral vision is blurrier than a cell phone camera from 1998! In this episode, host Jason Silva—with the help of deception specialist Apollo Robbins and psychologist Brian Scholl, the director of Yale University’s Perception and Cognition Lab—reveals the secrets behind the mysteries of focus and attention. Using the all-American pastime football as a backdrop, they’ll demonstrate how your brain is constantly working to select what it thinks is the most important information, and filtering out the rest… as if it was never there. From change blindness tests involving the hairiest “cheerleaders” you’ve ever seen, to a play-along test of your abilites to tell left from right (we make it harder than you think), to a “spot the errors” sequence of movie continuity errors, you’ll enjoy exploring the limits of your attention system in this fast-paced half hour of fun.

  
This is really fun and interesting to know how our brain works! I had already watched their episodes at National Geographic Channel. You better give yourself a time to relax and have fun in everything.
