activities were designed to show you how your brain functions and works.
It just takes a few minutes to try them out.
here’s the first one: Read the passage below.
There is a
certain website with a white background and black text. From what it
seems at first glance, there are a lot of words all over the place in
neat lines and arranged in paragraphs without any variation in font or
style, making it look monotonous and boring. There is one blue-coloured
and underlined word at the end of the jumble of words.
many seconds did you take to read all that? Now look at your web
browser. Doesn’t the description you just read match this webpage? How
much time did you take to gather this information by looking at your web
this tell you about our brain? Does it work much faster by looking at a
picture itself than by looking at words that describe it?
now for the second one:
requires some simple preparation if you want to do this)
three basins or buckets with ice, tap water and hot water in them
respectively. Put the one with ice on the left, the one with tap water
in the middle and the one with hot water on the right. Now put your left
hand into the ice and your right hand into the hot water for 30 seconds.
Then quickly transfer your hands to the basin with the tap water. By
right, they should feel the same. But does you left hand feel warmer
than your right?
this tell you about our sense of touch and temperature? It is very
accurate? Now you know why you must use a thermometer to tell if you
have a fever.
