22 August - World Brain Day
The human attention span is shorter than a goldfish. Research shows that the average attention span has decreased by an average 12 minutes over the last 10 years. Studies have even shown some links between device multi-tasking for example, if youre scrolling through social media while watching TV and declining attention spans.
Your brain is about the size of your fist and weighs on average three pounds. But the organ holds 400 miles of blood vessels, some 100 billion neurons, and around a trillion glial cells (a type of cell thought to protect and support neurons). Like with fingerprints, no two people have the same brain anatomy, a study has shown. This uniqueness is the result of a combination of genetic factors and individual life experiences. Like with fingerprints, no two people have the same brain anatomy, a study by researchers of the University of Zurich has shown.
