SCIENTISTS From Caltech, Californian Institute of Technology, have developed a visual illusion that could help them explain the peculiar phenomenon that occurs in our brain. The illusion itself includes a set of beeps and flashes, and begins by looking at the cross on the screen and trying to figure out how much flash you see.
As you look at the cross, you hear the sound signals and see the flashes at the bottom of the screen. Only flashes will follow.
“Although only two flashes are happening, most people think there is a third, which coincides with the other signal and is happening to them in the center of the screen,” explains Caltech scientists.
Illusion is explained as a consequence of the phenomena in our brain called “consequential processing”.
