Did you know that the human brain can process an image in 13 milliseconds?
POR RRHH Digital, 00:02 - 20 de Junio del 2014

To give you an idea of the awesomeness of this data, it means that the brain can interpret around 77 different images seen by the eye in just one second, about 4.615 images a minute.

Fast enough, right? These new parameters were recorded by U.S. researchers and are almost eight times faster than the 100 milliseconds reported by previous studies.

"The brain is trying to understand what we are seeing throughout the day," said Mary Potter, MIT professor of brain and cognitive sciences and lead author of the study.

The experiment began by asking people to seek some type of image from a collection of photos presenting 6-12 at a speed between 13 and 80 milliseconds.

The image is captured by the brain and can still be processed during more time to identify the elements present in it. Image remains marked in our brain although we have just had a look.

In the new study, researchers gradually increased the speed of the images until they reached a point in which subjects were guessing.

According to Daily Mail, at the highest speed, new subjects were watching new images more than 20 times faster than usually.
It is a simply amazing ability that our brain hold, don’t you think?


Cognitive Sciences: the study of the precise nature of different mental tasks and the operations of the brain that enable them to be performed, engaging branches of psychology, computer science, philosophy, and linguistics.
