How many basketball passes can you count

View this tape and see how many passes you can count between players in the white shirts. Apparently few viewers can see more than ten.

In a recent course related to Chronic Pain management we spent some time talking about the work of C Chabris and D Simons who wrote a facinating book on the subject.

Inattentional blindness can be a problem for all of us at different times. It seems extreme focus can limit what you see of other things in plain sight.
