Optical Illusions

The Neural Correlate Society sponsors an annual Best Optical Illusions contest. The Neural Correlate Society includes visual scientists, ophthalmologists, neurologists, and visual artists that use a variety of methods to help discover the neural underpinnings of visual illusory perception. Their top ten list is here: tinyurl.com⁄2e5rsg

They present each of the illusions along with an explanation. Some involve complicated animations and interactions. My favorites were:
  • Drifting Background
  • Leaning Towers
  • Swimmers, eels ...
  • Steel Magnolias
