Brain teaser game: Can you count? (attention experiment)

Do we all have “atten­tion deficits”? Or is there some­thing else going on? Let’s try this lit­tle exper­i­ment, con­ceived by Simons and Chabris for their clas­sic study on sus­tained inat­ten­tional blindness.

Below you can watch a brief video clip, and your chal­lenge is to count the total num­ber of times that the bas­ket­balls change hands. 

 

Fas­ci­nat­ing, isn’t it?
