Challenge your senses!

25 October 2007

I love BBC Science & Nature website, and quite often, I play around with the different quizzes and tests that they have online. And it is pretty cool to discover science through a fun way rather than the dry facts and numbers method.

Challenge your senses!

It is rather amusing to see how we are deceived by what we perceive, and therefore, the lesson tells us that our brain can be rather easily manipulated into believing something, given the right stimuli. Kind of scary too obviously, as these would be the techniques honed by some to control other people’s behaviour, including brain washing them.

By the way, even being aware (somewhat) of what I’d be expected to do during this challenge, I only score 10/20 in the accuracy of my senses at work.
