How Good is Your Selective Attention?


Find out by watching the following selective attention test video by Prof Daniel J. Simons.

 

In the experiment the above video was original used in, nearly half of the viewers responded as predicted, which led to research conclusions about what, in certain circumstances, could be a failing of our neurological makeup.

It’s not only researchers and stage magicians that use misdirection to capitalise on the ‘inattentional blindnesss’  blind spot created by selective attention.

When the spectacle is thrust in your face, keep an eye on the other hand.
