Put Your Concentration to the Test [Video Activity]

May 14, 2015

Do we really see everything going on around us? We may feel we do, but the reality is that our conscious attention—the part of our brain that can focus and actively ‘think’—is limited. Of all the information coming into our brain at any one time, we can only pay attention to less than 1%.

This is the cause of a phenomenon called ‘inattentional blindness’—the ‘blind spots’ created by our brain’s limitations. This means that from time to time, we will miss things. We may also overlook changes in our environment, even when they happen right in front of us.
