I found this research from my alma mater interesting. For some, no matter how hard they focus, the brain still can't pick up on the an object's motion. According to the article up to 50 percent of people have motion blindness in part of their field of vision. At least I have a new excuse now! :D

"As many as half of people are blind to motion in some part of their field of vision, but the deficit doesn't have anything to do with the eyes.

In a study published Sept. 28 in the journal Psychological Science, University of Wisconsin-Madison psychology Professor Bas Rokers and collaborators in the Netherlands have shown that motion blindness is a failure of the brain to properly interpret sensory information - a type of deficit called agnosia."
