ad the following sentence:
Finished files are the result of years of scientific study combined with the experience of many years.
Now that you have read the above sentence, count the number of fs in the sentence.
What is your initial response, did you count 2 fs?
3 fs?
or more?
Did you have to count more than once to arrive at the correct answer? (the correct answer is 6)
This simple activity is a demonstration of how quickly the brain senses and perceives information – sometimes accurately, sometimes not so accurately.
Comment on your experience with the sentence activity above – did you count the number of
fs correctly on the first try – or did you miss a few? 🙂

Three additional videos associated with material from Chapter 4 are adjuncts to material from Chapter 4 and also encouraged.
Mirror Box Therapy 1:
Mirror Box demonstration video
(relates to phantom limb pain and pain perception), Mirror Therapy 2:
Mirror Therapy with Amputee,.
Lastly, consider the following question:
“If you could have one enhanced sense, which one would it be?” What would be the advantages (serious or silly) of that enhancement?
Could you
imagine a downside or disadvantage to it?
Explain.
