Girl and the goldfish

I now have a subscription to a huge library of video clips, images and sounds. That means I can make explainer videos without a camera for a budget price.

This example is based on a study released by Microsoft in 2015. That company had sponsored a study in which Canadian scientists used EEG scanners to test the attention spans of 112 humans. They found we could concentrate for only eight seconds and  blamed the results on the proliferation of cell phones. But, said researchers, the results also showed how adaptable the human brain is to constantly changing stimuli. Read Time Magazine’s coverage of the experiment.  The study has been much criticized and is no longer available on the Microsoft website.
