Video

Developed nervous system - a great evolutionary acquisition: it allows us not only to observe the phenomena of the world, but also to establish relationships among them and patterns, and even predict what's going to happen. Unfortunately, this skill is developed in us too well, we tend to see patterns where there are none. What experiments vividly demonstrate the propensity to confusion in humans (and other animals), and that helps us to resist the temptation to explain all the most obvious, but not always the most correct way?
