Back in 2014, a group of neuroscientists from MIT published a report on the minimum length of time required for the human mind to process information from an image: 13 milliseconds, almost an order of magnitude faster than previously believed. How fast is 13 milliseconds? A blink of an eye takes about 100 milliseconds; a standard camera shutter motion takes about 125 milliseconds; the flap of a hummingbird wing takes about 80 milliseconds. So, 13 milliseconds is pretty fast.

Yet psychologists have also studied the weaknesses in making fast judgments or quick conclusions. Read the full article here…
