Your brain moves more attention to objects that know little, no matter how big they are

The size of the object determines how much attention will be given to the brain. However, this is not how much you know the object that counts how much our brains have their experience.

George Washington University researchers said that the size of the object is a key factor considering our brain when the focus is on. Conclusions, they say, will facilitate the way for special training to help people better understand certain objects such as tumors on radiological plate or hidden items.

It is important

"Since people can only pay attention to a limited amount of time, our brain uses an objective measure to determine how much attention this object has been given," says Sarah Shomstein, professor of cognitive neuroscience at GW Columbia College, Columbia, co-author of art and science and paper.

"However, we can see that the object may differ from its true size, such as a car that appears when it is very close and small when it is far away.Our research has first shown that the brain draws attention to the size of the object and not With our eyes.

For research, Dr. Schumann and his team showed several daily items (real life of different sizes). These items, though – from domino blocks to the whole billiard tables – were shown the same fixed size in all photographs. The team also added "investigative goals" in each picture. What they wanted was, how long the participants took these targets in each picture.

In a small real world, objects were reacted more quickly than in the municipality, even though they were participating in the eyes of the participants in the same space. Dr. Schoestein says that this will happen because the prior knowledge of the participants has exceeded the size of the object. Because of this, their brains were automatically tailored to the extent to which each item was given attention (which, in turn, easily or easily understood the objectives).

"If the objects are identical with your eyes, you know that one of them is small – from the surrounding area of ​​the domino – pool table far – pay more attention to the little thing," he explains

The team showed participants images of daily items and asked them to evaluate their size across one six ("one" very small and "six" too large). Here the results have shown that there is a direct correlation between how the participants evaluated the size of each unit and when they were reacting to the target stimulus within the image.

"Your personal rating determines how effective it is to attend this facility," says Andrew J. Colleague. "If you think the pool table is really big, then your attention must be oriented".

The team hopes that these conclusions will help us better understand how people are producing concrete objects as they focus around the world. In the long run, they conclude that these conclusions may indicate the way of new learning tools that will improve the possibility of people to revise certain items in different contexts.
