You Can’t See This (Mind Tricks)

Our brains and eyes aren’t always showing us everything that’s available to see. Instead, learning, memory, and expectation changes our vision to fit as much as we can comprehend in any given moment. In this AsapScience, we’re introduced to a series of optical illusions and misperceptions, and learn more about why these brain benders happen: You Can’t See This.

Next: Brusspup’s Crazy Circle Illusion and AsapScience’s Can You Trust Your Eyes?
