Things that cause "brain glitch"

The human brain copes with the perception of everyday objects and of everyday life. However, there are a few exceptions.


Probably everyone had this situation when he came into the room with a purpose, for example to bring anything, and then couldn't remember why they came. As it turned out, the cause of these memory lapses are the doors.

Psychologists at the University of Notre Dame claim that when a person passes through the doorway, his mind separates the thoughts and memories of one episode from another, this division is called "border thinking."

The brain puts thoughts that have been in the mind of a man in the same room, thereby clearing the space for the new. This happens in order to organize our thoughts and memories, as the brain often have to switch to a new task.


According the experiment it was found that if a person offer to throw Darts in the photo, with a picture on which he has no connection, then its accuracy will be much worse than if with the same purpose to use the photo, for example, Hitler or the man he hates.

Another experiment showed that if people ask to cut into small pieces of pictures that are related with his childhood memories, he might be sweating.

This is because our brains haven't adapted to the advent of photography and therefore can not distinguish image from reality.


Another common situation: a person feels the phone vibrate, but when it gets to test detects that no call, no SMS has been received. This is due to the fact that the human brain filtering out unnecessary noise and selecting from the signals, makes incorrect conclusions.

Thus, the brain interpreterpath different kinds of noises and the noises and hurries to inform that you called.


Sometimes in the movie it seems that the wheels of the car rotate in the opposite direction? This is due to the fact that cameras record still images with a certain frequency, and the brain fills in the gaps between the images, creating the illusion.

But, the effect of the wheels rotating in the opposite direction can be in real life. The main theory explaining this phenomenon is as follows: the brain perceives motion much the same as the camera – in a series of static images.
