    A new study from Vanderbuilt and Kobe Universities proves that human can function automatically without little thought to the task at hand, such as typing.

    Psychologists from Vanderbuilt and


    Kobe universities say that we are able to perform complex activities


    with necessarily being mind of the mechanics involved, for instance


    when typing.  In the study, researchers found that participants


    could type an average 72 words per minute with 94% accuracy but


    had a very difficult time assigning key location to a black QWERTY


    keyboard.  This demonstrates the theory of automatism in which


    the brain can perform actions without conscious thought or action.
