How fast can the eye really see?
« on: March 05, 2020, 05:26:58 PM »
Cool study I found -- researchers displayed images for a short time and had people describe the image.  Some people were able to describe images shown for only 13 milliseconds (0.013 seconds)! 


In 2014 a study by Potter and colleagues at MIT revealed that the brain can process and interpret images presented to the eyes for as little as 13 milliseconds, eight times faster than what researchers had thought in the past (100 milliseconds).
