    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.
