A newly designed optical illusion is helping researchers better understand visual processing and perception. The illusion creates a subjective reality in what we see, highlighting the constructive nature of perception.
Researchers report the same subset of neurons encode actual and illusory flow motion, supporting the concept Jan Purkinje proposed 150 years ago, that "illusions contain visual truth".
According to University of York researchers, the ability to read fine print may be enhanced following exposure to a common visual illusion. The researchers found visual acuity may be enhanced by the expanding motion aftereffect optical illusion.
Researchers report the Kalman filter, an algorithm both our brains and GPS systems use to track an object's position, can be tricked by the pattern of motion.

Researchers have successfully reproduced illusory motion in deep neural networks that were trained for perception. The DNNs were able to accurately reproduce the direction of illusory rotation humans observe while looking at a popular optical illusion.
A new study addresses the nature and origin of neural signals involved in solving perceptual tasks.
Scientists have come up with new insight into the brain processes that cause the optical illusion below The yellow jacket...
