Full Disclosure: Optical illusions like these are often intended just as a light-hearted distraction from the stresses of modern life — but they also have legitimate scientific value for medical professionals. These brain teasers are credited with helping researchers shed light on the complex inner workings of the human mind and how it responds to its surroundings.
dr Gustav Kuhn, a psychologist and expert on human perception at Goldsmiths University in London, once told The Sun that illusions are important to our understanding of the brain: “We usually take perception for granted and rarely think about the hard work that goes into it everyday life is based on tasks, such as seeing a cup of coffee in front of you.”
