Take a look at these images and test your powers of perception. If you can’t believe your eyes or get stumped, it’s because you’re looking at five optical illusions. By definition, illusions are images and sights which strongly disagree with physical reality.

When we suddenly realize that not all is as it appears, our brains light up, forcing us to pay extra attention to whatever it is that seems to be playing tricks on our eyes. It’s our brains that interpret and make sense of all the incoming sights and people love looking at optical illusions because they’re new challenges for us to figure out.

According to Aude Oliva, a cognitive research scientist at MIT, “Anything that is new and surprising is something we naturally like because it means that we may learn something from it.” It’s no wonder so many of us enjoy illusions, and the ones here are no exception!

Here’s a little background information about the interesting visual phenomenons we experience. When it comes to optical illusions, they are all about the eyes, our brain, and perception. Specifically, the eyes visually perceive an image which the brain then processes as either not fitting in line with or matching the stimulus source that it’s emanating from.

In other words, it is when you look at something and end up seeing something else that is completely different. You look at X but think you’re seeing Y. There are many different types of illusions and optical ones, also known as visual illusions, happen to be the most well known sub-category.
