New York: As city streets become increasingly crowded with distractions, our ability to process visual information remains unchanged. Can modern eyes keep up?

A new study suggests that even as we process a million things at once, we still remain sensitive to certain changes in our visual environment – even while performing a difficult task, says IANS.

Researchers from Concordia University, Kansas State University, the University of Findlay, the University of Central Florida, and the University of Illinois prove that we can automatically detect changes in blur across our field of view.

“Blur is normally compensated for by adjusting the lens of the eye to bring the image back into focus,” said study co-author Aaron Johnson, professor of psychology at Concordia University.
