Науковець розвіяв популярний міф про роботу мозку

The brain cannot simultaneously perform several tasks, he simply did not have enough resources. About this in comments to the newspaper “Express” said Viktor Komarenko, candidate of biological Sciences, associate Professor, Kyiv national Taras Shevchenko.

“Multitasking is a myth — says the scientist. — Brain Monogatari. He can not simultaneously run more than two processes, requiring a focus. He just doesn’t have enough resources.

A person may have the skills that it is automated — for example, driving a car. In such processes, the brain focuses attention and while working on something else.

People who are called polsacie is actually those who are able to very quickly switch from one task to another. However, they make more mistakes than those who focus only on one task”.
