Optical illusions are frightening images that challenge our perception and visual skills. These illusions play with our visual system by tricking it into believing that something else is present in the image.
In other words, what you see and what you think you see are two different things.
These illusions stimulate areas of the brain responsible for visual memory and intelligence, and are also used as simple tools to test the ability of our visual system to observe things around us.
Regular practice of such challenges has the ability to improve cognitive abilities, thereby preventing cognitive decline in older people.
