In this day and age it can sometimes be simple to fix any physical problem we have with the variety of alternatives, whether it’s taking a tablet, taking some herbs or major cook through exercise and dieting. Ever observe how the brain proved a lot quicker when you were younger and now, as you age, it seems to become slower.
There is one technique you can use that will keep your brain younger – optical illusions!
Our brain needs to be worked out just as our bodies do. The mind needs to be kept distinct, updated and ripped. You would not let your body degenerate up from disuse so jump up into some optical illusions and work out your brain to keep it active always at any age.
1. Each victory comes out from a defeat…? See below the image has two words.. Can you find out the answer..?
The answer is in the question itself..?
2. See the word coloured in white color. Can you find out.. ?
Answer: His followers prays in church.
3. The word in this image is a direction…?
4. See this image slightly turning your head right side down..
Answer: It’s the opposite of word “truth”.
5. The following image contains 2 words in 2 different colors.
In the above image, You can see there is a plate which is broken. Now, Concentrate exactly on the two dots(eyes) for 15-20 seconds and slowly keep an eye on the broken area, it seems to disappear. Try it!.
In the text above there are actually 10 F’s! Generally all people under count number of F’s because they fail to notice the letter ‘f’ in the word ‘of’. The words like ‘of’ are unconsciously processed by our brain because they aren’t considered important.
Those who counted,
2-4 : Ordinary (55% people are coming under this category)
5-8 : Extra ordinary (45% people)
8-10: Genius (10 % people)
The Answer is:
The wheels in this image appear to move – even though in reality they are utterly stationary.
The illusion is so strong that many people feel nauseous if they look at the image for more than a few moments – and may feel ill for some time afterwards.
Notice that only those wheels in your peripheral vision appear to rotate. When you look directly at one of the wheels, you can’t ‘catch’ it moving!
Until very recently scientists had struggled to explain this and other ‘anomalous motion’ illusions. However, a paper published in June 2005 has begun to shed light on how your brain might be interpreting this illusion.
Each wheel in the illusion is made up of 4 coloured elements: black, blue, white and yellow – in that order.
It would seem the critical feature for making the wheels rotate, is the differences in the levels of luminance between adjacent elements.
This means that the illusion also works well when printed in black and white.
What’s happening in your brain?
For many years scientists have known we have specific neurons in our brains that fire when we look at something moving in a particular direction. These are called direction-selective neurons.
When scientists examined this illusion they found something quite remarkable.
Direction-selective neurons in the visual cortex begin firing when looking at this illusion. This is particularly exciting because up until now, scientists thought this type of brain neuron could only be activated by seeing something that was really moving (either on-screen or in the real world).
They think that the cells that detect motion lower down the visual system have actually interpreted the rollers as if they were really moving.
This amazing illusion has been created and refined by Japanese vision expert Akiyoshi Kitaoka
