"A Wrackspurt... They're invisible. They float in through your ears and make your brain go fuzzy, I thought I felt one zooming around in here."
Luna Lovegood to Harry and Neville while onboard at Hogwarts Express in 1996[src]

A Wrackspurt is an invisible creature which floats into a person's ears, making his/her brain become unfocused.[1] Supposedly, Wrackspurts can be seen with aid of Spectrespecs. Those suffering from Wrackspurt infections can possibly dispell them by thinking positive thoughts.[2] In 1998, The Quibbler reported that some Wrackspurts broke out of the Ministry Elfin' Safety Enquiry.

Xenophilius Lovegood's attempt to recreate Rowena Ravenclaw's Diadem included wrackspurt siphons, "to remove all sources of distraction from the thinker's immediate area."
