Brain will prevent overload
Excerpt: The conscious part of the human brain is actually more in tune with body parts that are not moving, the researchers found.
In a recent study conducted at UBC’s Okanagan campus, researchers found many of the signals and sensations travelling between moving body parts and the brain are ignored by the conscious mind.
“Even as one of the most sophisticated computers ever made, the conscious part of the human brain ignores huge amounts of data created when body parts move in order to avoid information overload,” says human kinetics Prof. Gord Binsted. “This ingrained biological data sifting is very similar to what goes on in the human visual system, which ignores a vast amount of data collected while the eyes are moving."
