Testing Your "Motion Quotient" by UniversitRochester: Researchers at the University of Rochester have found that a simple visual task can predict IQ. In the study, individuals watched video clips of black and white bars moving across a computer screen, very similar to the clips seen in this video. Their sole task was to identify which direction the bars drifted: to the right or to the left. Check it out! #IQ #Sensory_Discrimination #Test

50 Common Cognitive Distortions A giant list of ubiquitous cognitive distortions.
Our visual system is usually trying to make sense of the images our eyes detect. If you give your visual processing system time, it may figure out that this shape is an “E”. At first it is hard, but you have no problem finding it once you know what to expect. The pattern is recorded in your visual experience and processing “record book”. Your eyes use the visual processing from your brain to identify shapes. This kind of optical illusion tests your ability to detect simple patterns.
The groups of dots seem to be different, but they are not. The first group seems to be in columns, the second seems to be in lines, and the third seems to be in either state, depending on how you see it. This diagram displays the basis of most optical illusions, which is a changeable figure. Can you see the differences between them? The dots are spaced differently as well as vary in number. The spacing determines how we see the collection of dots, which makes all three seem different.
This Can't Be Happening by Robert Krulwich, NPR: You see two circles composed of parallelograms. There's a dot in the middle of the image. Focus on the dot. Move your head in, then move it out. The circles seem to rotate. Krulwich talks about some optical illusions. #Optical Illusions ##Robert_Krulwich #NPR
