A new Microsoft study has highlighted the deteriorating attention span of humans.

In a bid to determine the impact of electronic gadgets on our ability to concentrate, Microsoft monitored the brain activity of some people using electroencephalograms (EEGs).

While the research revealed that we are able to multitask better now, humans were found to have worse attention spans than goldfish.

The average human attention span was found to have fallen to eight seconds from 12 in 2000, putting humans below goldfish, which are is believed to have an attention span of nine seconds.
