Can you read two words? .

hear. or become aware of something through the senses. .What is Perception?  The ability to see.

What is Illusions? An illusion is a distortion of the senses. revealing how the brain normally organizes and interprets sensory stimulation. .

Why Does Our Mind See Illusions? .

The Human brain put images together because it has learned to expect things. . The basis of this is in how we perceive things. We may see an illusion because we know what we are expected to see. even though part of a picture or design may not be completely there. sometimes the data might get a little confused.

That almost explains everything right there. we would not see illusions like we do. . If our brain and eyes did not function like they do.

fill in all of the empty spots. our brain can fill in all of the missing pieces and the pictures on the television appear to be moving. As a result. Our brain has learned to expect movement. The television just shows us a continuous flow of still pictures. even though they really aren’t! . Your eyes. one right after the other.One example of optical illusion is the television. along with your brain.

look at a computer screen very closely for a minute or two. You will notice that your computer screen is made up of tiny red. and blue dots together to make the colors! . and blue dots. and blue dots. green. green. The illusion here is that you see more than just red. Our brains put the red. you see thousands of different colors. Sometime. when you have a chance. green.A computer monitor is also one big optical illusion.

They are an error in our perception of the illusion.Optical illusions just trick you into seeing something else. .
