Check out these 3 visual illusions below, and remember, things aren't always as they appear!
1. Are the squares inside the blue and yellow squares all the same color?
2. Are the horizontal lines straight or crooked?
3. Are the circles static or moving?
How'd you do? Read below to see what was going on and how your brain viewed the images.
1. Bezold Effect
The smaller squares inside the blue and yellow squares are all the same color. They seem different (magenta and orange) because a color is perceived differently depending on its relation to adjacent colors (here blue or yellow depending on the outer square).
2. Cafe Wall Illusion
The horizontal lines are straight, even though they do not seem straight. In this illusion, the vertical zigzag patterns disrupt our horizontal perception.
3. Illusory Motion
The circles do appear to be moving even though they are static. This is due to the cognitive effects of interacting color contrasts and shape position.
