Pay Attention!



Pay Attention!

This video shows how fallible our minds really are. Even when we believe we're paying close attention, our brains can only focus on and remember a small subset of the information they process. It's easy to see what you've missed when the scene is completely broken down and replayed back to you. The question becomes, in real life, when scenes can't be replayed, how sure would you be of details to an event you witnessed? How sure would you be hours, days, or weeks later?

This clip is part of Brain Games, a television series featured on the National Geographic channel.
