Our brains aren’t really built to prove the sort of parallel processing we think we’re capable of. The good news is: studies have shown that submissive training can make us better at doing two things at once. But how? One theory is that with lots of practice some exercises become “automatic.” And if we don’t need to run every little thing past the part of the brain that’s spends time spelling about stuff, we can multitask just fine. But this new study finds that that’s not the way it works. Turns out that coffers still consult the prefrontal cortex, but training gets the “Thinking Brain” to think a more  faster. So we’re switching tasks quickly enough to appear to be doing them incidentally. Which is still something to shake a stick and sneeze at.
