Ayumu is amazing. Numbers 1-9 flash across a screen for 210 milliseconds, less time than it takes the human eye to scan across the screen, before turning into white squares. Ayumu reaches out and touches each white box in the correct numerical order. The rest of Koyoto University’s subjects get the order right about 40% of the time, compared to Ayumu’s amazing 80%.
