There are many different things that we see in the world around us and we use our sense of vision to interpret those items in ways that we don’t quite understand. For example, color has to do with the way that light bounces off of objects and our perspective, in part, has to do with the fact that our eyes are separated slightly from each other. One other factor that we see on a regular basis is movement. Movement is defined as changing physical location or position, and we see things in motion in the world around us at all [More]

The eyes are constantly picking up information from the world around us and transmitting it to the brain. When they do so, the brain is responsible for interpreting any information that is provided and using existing memories to create something that should be a close resemblance to what we are really seeing. The problem is, there are going to be times when we don’t see what is really there and that is what is known as an optical illusion. The optical illusions provided in this video are quite amazing. Even after you understand the truth about what you are seeing, [More]
When we were children, we may have played with a wide variety of items. For some of us, it may have been marbles and for others, dominoes.

In the following video, you will be asked to look at the screen for a few [More]
There is no denying the fact that the brain is an amazing part of the human body. Scientists have yet to unlock many of its mysteries and it is unlikely that they will ever fully comprehend all that the brain has to offer. It is even said that we only use a small portion of our brain, so our abilities may be far beyond what now exists. Even though that is the case, it is still possible to trick the brain in a variety of ways. One of the interesting ways that the brain can be tricked is first by [More]
Although there are many different types of optical illusions, including many different ways that those optical illusions can trick both the eyes and the mind, one that is often used is known as anamorphosis.

When you look at it from any angle other than one specific vantage point, it looks as if it is distorted but when you’re at the proper vantage point, the drawing comes to life. That is what you are going to see in this Apple skull drawing. As you watch a [More]
When most of us think about psychology, the first thing that comes to our mind is a doctor sitting in front of us and trying to analyze the way that we think. Although that may be true in a loose sense, you might be surprised to learn exactly how much our vision has to do with our mind. Of course, we realize that the images we see are from light gathered in the eyes and transmitted as data to the brain, but there are other ways in which it can be seen as well. One of those methods is known [More]
