Attention: How your brain responds to a changing environment

Montréal · Montréal      

Activity Public

In an environment that is constantly changing, your brain can only concentrate on one thing at a time. So, how does your brain pay attention? Join a group of neuroscientists from BrainReach for fun and interactive activities that introduce the idea of inattentional blindness, how your brain can ignore major differences in your environment, games such as the Stroop test that will test your attention, and more! BrainReach invites you to learn about how your brain selectively pays attention to certain aspects of your changing environment and how your brains ability to filter out “unimportant information” impacts your everyday life - from paying attention in the classroom to having a conversation with a family member or friend. Finally, we’ll discuss some ways to help improve attention! Don’t forget to check out our brain models, real animal brains and join us for hands-on learning by discovering what cells look like under a microscope!
